County Council hires firm to fix financial woes
Delaware County Council unanimously approved an agreement Wednesday with a Harrisburg-based consulting firm which is expected to find solutions to funding shortfalls the county faces for its enhanced 911 system and the Fair Acres Geriatric Center.
Council’s agreement is with Capitol Strategies Group LLC. The cost of the contract is about $86,000 and will expire at the end of this year.
In addition to the 2.8 percent tax hike, council decided to give all county employees a 2 percent raise this year.
