Wilmington, Del. —

The budget New Castle County Council will be voting on at its May 26 meeting is taking its final shape.

Cuts to employee's salaries, layoffs, and a deferment of the county's pension contributions will save the county $5.3 million more than was projected when County Executive
Chris Coons first proposed his budget on March 17.

About 1,000 county employees took salaries cuts of 5 percent, while nine paramedics and an undisclosed number of police face layoffs unless the county and FOP can strike an eleventh hour deal.

If approved by council, the county's 2010 operating budget will be $228 million, $11.5 million smaller than 2009's spending plan.

The budget also includes a 25 percent property tax increase.

"Bob Weiner has done a great job in developing and constantly keeping a watchful eye over the Talley Day County Park and its dog park. I live on Wilson Road directly across the street from the park. I talk to many pet owners who just love the park. Many have told me that it's very relaxing there and they love the fact that their dogs can play together in a secure environment. When Bob walks around the park with his two dogs he stops to say hi to everyone. He certainly deserves credit for a job "well done" and I thank him for that along with so many pet owners. "
