Call to action: Contact your NCC Council member
The decision to whether to subscribe to NCC Deluxe is in the hands of the 13 members of the New Castle County Council.
On this Tuesday, May 21 the Council will vote whether to subscribe the citizens of New Castle County to NCC Deluxe.
If you haven’t figure it out by now, there is no such thing as NCC Deluxe. The actual vote is for the Fiscal Year 2019 New Castle County budget. We need to tell the Council that we want them to vote in favor of the Budget Recommended by County Executive Matthew Meyer for the budget proposal that does not include cuts to the NCC services that we all enjoy such as public safety, parks, and libraries.

Dear Members of the New Castle County Council, As your constituent and fellow New Castle County resident, I encourage you to vote in favor of the Fiscal Year 2019 New Castle County Operating Budget as recommended by County Executive Matthew Meyer. I enjoy the great public services that are provided to the residents of New Castle County, and I do not wish to see them cut. Even if that means having to pay a little bit more for them. On February 27, 2017, many of you voted yes to R18-037 which opposed the closure of the Elsmere Public Library. Please reaffirm your commitment to R18-037 by voting in favor of the recommended budget, which will ensure this important library will remain open along with the other services that will be cut if the budget does not pass. (Add a personal message about which parks/libraries/services you personally enjoy) Sincerely, (your name and address)
