There will be no adult entertainment in Millville.

That was the unanimous opinion of the town council which voted to ban such businesses from the city limits.

The August 11th decision also banned massage parlors and taprooms.  

WBOC reports that the decision to bar the massage parlors may have been the result of a prostitution outfit operating in two such businesses in Rehoboth Beach last year.

Steve Maneri has been chosen to fill the fifth seat on the Millville town council left vacant when Deputy Mayor Jon Subity decided not to seek another term.

Mayor Gerald Hocker told the Salisbury Daily Times that while others had expressed interest Maneri was the only one to apply.

Maneri has served on the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission for the last two years.

Before coming to Delaware he served for six years as a Town Council member in Monroe, New York.



            Town officials are looking at drawing up a set of policies for the Millville Volunteer Group.

            Town Manager Debbie Botchie told the Wilmington News Journal that a manual would explain the dos and don’ts…when representing the city as a volunteer.

            Council member Robert Gordon, who is the municipality’s liaison to the group, noted there haven’t been any problems yet but there were concerns about what they should be doing.
