FY2014 State of the City
Mayor Dennis P. Williams presented his proposed Fiscal Year 2014 General Operating Budget and the Water/Sewer Fund Budget before a meeting of Wilmington City Council on Thursday, March 21, 2013.
Mayor Williams' address highlighted the four principles that he hopes will rebuild a sense of unity and pride among the City of Wilmington.
- Developing city employees into true public servants.
- Energizing neighborhoods to create a city we can all be proud to call home.
- Motivating parents and children to shape their own futures, and
- Creating economic prosperity that touches every corner of the City.
He also emphasized the importance of working collaboratively with City Council and the community to impact change. Mayor Williams’ speech read:
“But the change we need cannot be executed by me alone. It takes all of us. This change depends on my administration, all city employees, and every resident of this city working with City Council, the businesses and faith community. We all have a part to play.”
Mayor Williams’ speech also stressed the importance of empowering and educating citizens, in order to create safer and more engaged communities. The speech states:
“It’s time to educate and empower our people to take ownership and take action to make their neighborhoods a great place to live.”
