About the Council
The Wilmington Economic and Financial Advisory Council (WEFAC) produces periodic reports and provides critical oversight of revenue projections during each fiscal year as well as multi-year revenue projections for not less than five years beyond each current fiscal year. The WEFAC shall receive notice of all audits and an executive summary of the results of all audits, properly redacted to protect the anonymity of those named in the audit, and the WEFAC shall not participate in the audit process. The WEFAC may from time to time recommend budgetary and administrative changes as well as proposed city code amendments regarding economic and financial issues, fiscal controls and oversight.
