Delaware’s capital city is facing budget difficulties, and Dover City Council members will discuss a course of action today.
The budget gap facing Dover has been estimated by some at $3.6-million, leading to discussion of possible layoffs, tax increases and cost-cutting measures. Council has four new members who were elected last month. Dover is also looking for a replacement for City Manager Anthony DePrima who recently announced he is leaving the position he has held since 2001. Dover City Council meets tonight at 6:00 p.m.
