Special to 1808Delaware

A nine-member Delaware Financial Review Task Force approved by City Council to examine the city’s financial outlook and fiscal challenges has released its findings and residents now have an opportunity to provide public comment on the draft report.

The City of Delaware is accepting public comment on the report until 5 pm on Feb. 22. Following the public comment period, any needed changes will be made to the document, and it will be presented to City Council for adoption.

The report and public comment form are viewable here.

The Task Force was formed in March 2022, upon passage of City Council Resolution 22-18. Nine members of the Delaware community, possessing a variety of expertise and backgrounds, volunteered and were appointed to serve on the Task Force. Its members were specifically charged with:

  • Conducting a high-level review of the City’s current financial status and overall outlook,
  • Exploring collaborative service delivery opportunities and cost-containment measures,
  • Assessing existing City of Delaware service levels,
  • Assessing the status of transportation and other capital investments made to date, and the outlook/plans for future Capital Improvement Program budgets.

The Task Force was given unlimited access to the City’s financial management information, department heads and elected leaders.
