CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 5 - April 11, 1996- 19 DRT supporters call for more bus stops, longer season By Michael Short Delaware Resort Transit (DRT) got a modest turnout on March 29 for a public hearing on bus service planned in the Cape area this sum- mer. Only about ten people showed up for the hearing and the most common objection was that there just was not enough of a good thing. Karen Zakarian, the director of sales for Ruddertowne, asked for extended service through Septem- ber. She said that September brings a host of special events in- cluding racing at Dover Downs, the fireman's convention which attracts 900 people to the Rudder- towne complex and a realtor's convention, which attracts another 600 people to the complex. "The entire town has worked so hard to get people here. Let's im- press them while they're here." Jim Cresson, president of the Long Neck Business Association, said his association supports plans to run bus service between Long Neck and Rehoboth Beach. But he asked that the service be extended into September instead of ending with the Labor Day weekend. Dennis Diehl of Rehoboth Beach asked for more bus stops in Rehoboth Beach. He also asked that the parking lot at Gordon's Pond at the southern tip of Cape Henlopen State Park be consid- ered as a site for bus service. Diehl said bus service could be provided from that lot, which he feels is not heavily used. "Start moving people around so they don't have to move their cars," he said after the hearing. Specifically, Diehl suggested that the following stops be added to the bus service in town: Wilm- ington Trust, the Sea Horse, Quillen's Hardware and the Chamber of Commerce (there are already bus stops at Convention Hall, Rehoboth Library and the Rehoboth Boardwalk). DRT plans for this summer are expected to be finalized in a few weeks after the comments from Friday's hearing are taken into consideration. Those plans call for three new bus routes into the Reh0both area from Georgetown, Long Neck and Fenwick Island with plans due to be finalized before Memorial Day weekend. DRT officials said they were pleased at the lack of criticism during the Friday meeting in Re- FEHRENBACH'S CARPET PLUS Collection agency of cities' fines cleared T.D. Nottingham & Associates of Camden-Wyoming, which Re- hoboth Beach, Lewes and Bethany Beach have contracted to collect overdue parking fines, has been cleared of allegations that it improperly handled money. Stanley Friedman, the state's Department of Justice director of investigations, said that following a six-month investigation, there was no indication that the owner, Theresa Dabson, had improperly mishandled money. His office had received a com- plaint from a disgruntled former employee that Dabson had been illegally retaining some of the re- covered funds it was supposed to turn over to the cities. Rehoboth awards bid on Baltimore Ave. storm drain Despite concerns that the work will impede businesses on Balti- more Avenue, Rehoboth Beach Commissioners on April 1 award- ed a bid to A. P. Croll to construct a storm drain in the first block of Baltimore Avenue and intersec- tion at First Street, as well as an alternate bid for half of the second block. Of the total $178,000 cost, $75,000 will come from the state bond bill, with an additional $15,000 from street aid funds, leaving the city $56,000 short. However, City Manager Greg Fer- rese contacted State Sen. Richard Cordrey late last week and asked he authorize an additional $56,000 to complete the entire project. Ferrese learned April 1 that the money was allocated to the city, which will now only pay $46,000. Ferrese told the board the work will commence immediately and be completed before Memorial Day, although be believes they will finish by May 1. A few board members said they fear that the work will disrupt business activity along that stretch, but Ferrese said the construction is done a section at a time and the street will not be closed to traffic O r parking.

VOTE APR "Your Support Is Greatly Appreciated" Paid For By Friends of Mike Hill hoboth Beach. Bobbi Geier of DRT said that it is a challenge to try to increase service while still staying within budget and Brett Schmidt of DRT noted tht ser- vice has been expanded while the budget.has remained the same as last year's budget. "This is encouraging to see such support of transit in an area that doesn't have a lot of transit," Geier said.
