By visiting, residents can read about specifics of the proposal and submit a comment. The deadline for comments is Aug. 23.

A citizen-led task force met over the course of 2022 and 2023 to review the city’s financial standing. After months of studying the budget and recognizing existing and upcoming shortfalls, the task force recommended an increase in funding to maintain the high level of service Delaware residents expect.
