The Newcastle City Council is currently focused on the preliminary 2021 budget. During the previous meeting, the Council made a few important cuts, including the elimination of the 2021 summer events (Fourth of July, Concerts in the Park, Newcastle Days), as well as delaying the hire of an additional police officer requested by Police Chief Jason Houck. During the December 1 meeting, the Council will continue to make amendments to the budget as they look to adopt it before the end of the year.  To see what the Councilmembers will discuss, view the full meeting agenda packet here.

To protect the health and safety of our residents, Councilmembers and staff, the City Council meeting will be held via video conference. Members of the public will still have a chance to listen and watch. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
