New Castle County Executive Tom Gordon's regional community meeting on Monday for the Bear-Glasgow area has been moved to a new location – The Word of Life Christian Center at 854 Old Baltimore Pike in Newark.
The meeting is still scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30.
County Executive Gordon directed the New Castle County Department of Public Safety and the Office of Community Governing to hold regional community meetings that discuss the County’s predictive policing, storm preparation, code enforcement and constituent services. County staff will also speak about the benefits of the County’s participation in the “Smart911” program, as well as civil penalties caused by code violations.
For the convenience of New Castle County citizens, five meetings have been scheduled throughout various parts of the County. Monday's meeting will be the second one held thus far.
Civic groups and maintenance corporations, from each major area, may attend these regional meetings to learn about valuable governmental functions and services.
“We want people to know what resources are available to them in times of emergency or a crisis, not to mention the constituent services of which they can avail themselves,” County Executive Gordon said. “We also want them to know how the New Castle County Police Division has used state-of-the-art technology to predict where crime would occur, thereby reducing, by double digits, the amount of crime in the County.”
Those scheduled to give remarks:
County Executive Gordon, Councilman David Tackett, Director of Public Safety Joseph Bryant Jr., Police Chief Col. Elmer Setting, Emergency Communications Chief Jeff Miller, Emergency Medical Services Chief Larry Tan, Emergency Management Coordinator David Carpenter Jr., Assistant Land Use Administrator Al Washington, and Executive Assistant Bill Shahan, of the Office of Community Governing.
