A New Castle County government community meeting originally planned for Wednesday has been rescheduled for Oct. 9.
Policing, storm preparation, code enforcement and constituent services are slated to be discussed during the 6 p.m. meeting in the Appoquinimink Library at 651 N. Broad St.
is one of five regional community meetings county government will hold in September and October.
“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 Tom Gordon said in announcing the meeting. “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.”
Gordon, county public safety director Joseph Bryant Jr. and Bill Shahan, an executive assistant from the Office of Community Governing, are slated to give remarks at each of the five meetings.
County staff also will discuss the county’s participation in the “Smart911” program, as well as civil penalties that can result from code violations.
