The September 2011 Delmar Joint Councils meeting was held last night at 7:00PM. Last night's missing members were Delaware Councilman Woody Payne and Maryland Commissioner Jim Henderson. 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 meeting was over with by 7:45.
Some items discussed;
The parking ordinance has been rewritten and is awaiting comments from the councils. A completed version will be discussed in the Police Commission on October 10th and hopefully a "good' version will be presented at the October 24th Joint Council meeting for a first reading.
They are going to transform the present town hall into this (above) for a police department. The town hopes to move to the "new" town hall on October 10th.
They are proceeding with the school zone hidden speed traps.
Chris Mills has now said he will go to settlement on the LeCates Building next week (I have heard that one before).
A Halloween Proclamation was read.
Even with the meeting having a delayed start due to Carl Anderton being outside of the Town Hall building campaigning it was still over with by 7:45. In part this was due to the Woodcreek development public and Lloyd Unsell not being there.
The only public that was there, besides myself, the reporter from the Laurel Star and Susan Upole were the candidates for office in the Maryland Election. Is it true that Delmar spelled backward is Apathy?
Luther Hitchens and Carl Anderton are running for Mayor
Tom McGuire (Commissioner candidate) Pam Schell (Commissioner Candidate) and Nicole McGuire (Mayor Candidate)
Mike Gibb (Commissioner Candidate) Tom (Bunky) Luffman (Commissioner Candidate)
some candidates and the council members stayed after the meeting to move and stack the chairs so the election tables could be set up in the meeting room for the election tomorrow
