The August 2011 Delmar Joint Councils meeting was held last night at 7:00PM. Last night's missing member was once again Woody Payne who notified the council he had a family member with health issues and would be unable to make it. Maryland Commissioner James Henderson had brain surgery for a tumor and was back last night. My usual disclaimer is I am not part of the council and what I write is my personal views, not the minutes, of the meetings. It is also just the parts I want to comment on or write about. If you want to know the real stories go to the meeting or buy a newspaper.
The Oath of Office was given to the three people who will supervise the Delmar Maryland Election.
Generally there was not much going on in the meeting. Some discussion of; the effects of Irene, the Delmar Maryland Election, open house for the new town hall will be on Heritage Day (September 24th), plans for the new public safety building were shown (I use to call it the Police department but in the world of double speak politically correctness it is now Public Safety), New traffic patterns for Delaware and first street will be sent out this week to residents who live in the area of construction, the town newsletter also will go out this week, Tuesday Sept 6th the town will have a storm clean up day in which any trees etc that have fallen will be picked up by the town, Oct 9th the Delmar Fire Department will host the Delmarva Convention - big parade etc, the deed transfer on the LeCates building has once again been held up (no great surprise there) and maybe out in October it will be done, Walnut street flooding was discussed, and Woodcreek development is still complaining.
This is what the current town hall will look like after it is converted to a "Public Safety" building - Yes it does say police.
This is the floor plan of the building - in the event one of your black sheep relatives gets put in jail you will know how to break them out.
