Date Set for Referendum on Funding for New Delmar Public Safety Building

Aug 29, 2012

The town of Delmar in Delaware has set the date of September 27th for a vote on a referendum as to whether the city should borrow up to $400-thousand to convert the former town hall into a public safety building.

The vote will take place between 2pm and 7pm.

The Maryland Delmar commissioners voted unanimously to borrow up to $600-thousand to help with the renovation.

Delmar Mayor Carl Anderton in Maryland said that having a new facility would benefit both the department and the community.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the police department has been at its current location for more than 30 years and has lacked such things as a holding cell and sufficient space for patrol vehicles.
