New Castle, DE – As part of his administration’s effort to increase transparency, responsiveness and accessibility in County government County Executive Matthew Meyer today announced that he and members of his leadership team will work from locations across New Castle County throughout the spring, summer and beyond. During “County in Your Community” work days, Meyer and his senior staff will meet with local residents, government and civic leaders and business owners and entrepreneurs to provide updates on progress in bringing fiscal responsibility to county government, review new initiatives and facilitate conversations about how county government can leverage its resources to better serve families and their communities.
The first “County in Your Community” work day will take place next Tuesday, April 25th in Wilmington. There, the County Executive will meet with the local start-up community and hold a roundtable discussion with entrepreneurs at the co-working space The Mill.

I invite all residents of New Castle County to visit with me while we are in their neighborhood and share their ideas and concerns.”
