Dewey Beach says it may give up its right to 3-thousand square feet of space in the Lighthouse Cove project.
Under a proposed amendment to the agreement with the developers the city would give it up in exchange for $360-thousand.
It was supposed to have been used for office space.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Town Manager Marc Appelbaum says the town wants to keep its police and town hall in the same building.
The money would have to be paid in full by the end of June in 2017 or by the expiration of the building permit whichever comes first.
