Starting at 7:45 p.m. this Tuesday, January 14, New Castle Town Board meetings will be streamed on-line by NCCMC and will be interactive. Our goal is to keep residents informed and involved through the use of technology. We want an active community where people want to participate in government. Before the meeting, you can email your questions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . During the meeting, you can ask questions via a chat function on the live stream on New Castle Community Media Center (NCCMC)'s site—http://new.livestream.com/nccmc. Residents can just click on the Town Board meeting pane to view and chat. (Don't frustrate yourself by trying to sign up too early: the meeting has to begin before you can register. Once you register, however, you wont' have to do it ever again.)

We're encouraging residents to interact. This will help the town board gather information from residents who can't attend the meetings in person. We want to hear ideas and constructive criticism from our residents. We want to be accessible, and to benefit from the wisdom of our most important resource, our residents. The extra convenience of participating through Livestream will provide residents with an opportunity to share opinions and engage directly with the Town Board.

When will questions be answered?

During the Supervisor's Report, we'll answer some questions that have been emailed in advance to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Toward the end of the meeting we'll answer some of the questions sent through NCCMC's Livestream. Please specify whether you want your name read or withheld.

Community segment at the start of each meeting

This Tuesday, January 14, we will also be introducing a a segment of around five minutes brief five to ten minute community segment at the beginning of the meeting, at 7:45 p.m. In the community segment, we will recognize a business that has opened up or is celebrating a milestone. Some weeks we might have a town staff department head briefly explain the services they provide to the public. Other weeks we might recognize the work of a particular community group.

Coming soon

In the future, we plan to enable residents to sign up to receive emailed meeting agendas, as well as minutes following the meetings.

So join us Tuesday, January 14. The meeting begins at 7:45 p.m. Let's see how our new Livestream-ability works – and send us feedback afterwards, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Snow Notes to Residents

Winter Season Notes from DPW:

snowflakePlease be aware of the following this winter season:

  • Cars may not be parked overnight on any street between the hours of 1:00am and 7:00am, from November 1 to April 1.
  • During significant snow storms or difficult travel situations a state of emergency may be called be the Town Supervisor.  Typically the Town will post emergency declarations on its website (mynewcastle.org) or use the Code Red/NIXLE alert system, as appropriate, to notify residents.  No parking is allowed on any Town street during this time.
  • Dumping snow on Town roads is not permissible.  If you have a contractor plowing snow to clear your driveway please advise them that the Town does not allow them to push snow on to the road.
  • When significant snow storms are upon us, all necessary DPW employees are called in to work.  Please be patient as we have over 100-miles of road to plow and 15 plow operators.  It may be several hours to get to your road after each round of plowing.
  • Please consider safety when deciding if to travel during a snow storm.
