The commissioners discussed this among other issues at their quarterly meet- ingFriday, April 13. The hearing will be at the next quarterlY meeting, tentatively scheduled for Friday, July 13. The ordinance, drawn up by Henlopen Acres officials with input from the Rehoboth Art League, would allow an exception to the city code for the league's back-to-back weekend shows. With this new amendment, the league would not have to take down its exhibits in between the two shows. Ordinarily, temporary structures would have to be taken down in 72 hours. Not all the commissioners were on board with the ordinance. "we should havllle public hearing and the public comments and I would support that but I do not support the proposal in its present form," Commissioner David Hill said. "I think whatever we do, it's got to be uniform. It's got to be clear; it's got to apply to everyone, and the town has to have control over the process." Other items the commissioners discussed include the town's new election require- ments as mandated by the state, recommen- dations on floodplain requirements and clar- ifying language in the town code regarding the board of adjustment. Town Manager Thomas Roth informed the commissioners that questions regarding the upgrade of the water plant power supply have been clarified.
