Title 9, Chapter 21 of the Delaware Code provides, upon the petition of a majority of property owners of any unincorporated community or village in New Castle County, that New Castle County Council may enter into a contract with any electric, gas, or other lighting company to light the streets or highways running through, bounding, and within the community or village. Communities have requested, and this Act would provide, a narrow expansion of Title 9 to provide for other lighting, including lighting for neighborhood entrance signs. This Act also makes technical corrections to the statutes involved to conform to the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
