The June 2012 Delmar Joint Council Meeting

Last Night the June Delmar Delaware and Delmar Maryland Joint Council meeting was held.  Members missing were; Robt Thompson from the Delaware side and Karen Wells from the Maryland side. The public part of the meeting was over with by 8:22 PM when they went into executive session.  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 story - go to the meeting.  Tonight was one of those rare blue skies meetings in which almost all the news was positive for Delmar.

A few weeks ago, you mentioned in your council notes that Verizon Wireless had petitioned (and been approved) to fly flutter/feather flags (8ft tall ad flags) in front of their business for a promotion.

I know notice that Hardee's is flying some, but I don't recall them approaching the council about this. The furniture stores are getting out of hand with all the banners and signs. There are a few of the wire frame signs on the corns by M&T and Rite Aid. Why isn't Gaylon Bounds doing something about it?

Why can one business follow the rules, but others get away with not?
