Bits of Delmar News - 1977
The Delmar Town Council voted to spend a $9,000 grant from Sussex county on paving Sixth street as well as streets in West Delmar.
The New Police Department Building by Gordy park is about to be completed. It was financed 100% thru the Environmental Protection Agency Public Works Act of 1976. The purpose of which was to stimulate the economy.
Town Manager Robert Martin recommended that an area in West Delmar be zoned residential. The area was thought to be outside the town limits but a recent survey showed it is within the limits.
The council learned that the Delmar Fire Department addition will be a much higher cost than previously anticipated. Mayor William Brittingham said the town could only be responsible for the $100,000 the town had received from an EPA grant and the additional costs would have to be paid by the fire department.
Next thing you know, those same bitchers will be asking the town to install speed bumps down that street.
You watch...the movers and shakers will make it happen...then more of your tax dollars will pay for it.
I'll bet there are atleast 3 on the MD Commission that would go along with it and last time I checked, that's a majority.
Just wait and see.
