16 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 23 - May 29, 1997 Sewer Continued from page 1 nership Act for the purpose of sharing state revenue with Delaware's counties and incorpo- rated cities and towns, recogniz- ing that each of these entities has need of an additional revenue source," according to the legisla- tion. The funding pie, in the legis- lation introduced by Sen. Robert Marshall (D-Wilmington West) would slice up the money accord- ing to population. The most popu- lous areas would, in theory, have greater needs and receive more dollars. Rep. John Schroeder (D- Lewes), Sen. Bob Voshell (D- Milford), Rep. George Carey (R- Slaughter Neck), Rep. Shirley Price (D-Ocean View) and Sen. George Bunting (D-Bethany Beach) are other sponsors. Bunting said the bill is a good idea, but he pointed out many oth- er ways in which the money can be used. He noted that Frankford has no police and said that al- though the county rovides some Land use Continued from page 15 the committee was not able to reach a consensus in regard to a key point of discussion--the im- position of a maximum gross resi- dential density in agricultural ar- eas.., the state has a responsibil- ity and role in regard to establish- ing minimum criteria or standards funding for police, it does far less than New Castle County. "It's [the bill] a good idea and it's some- thing we should be doing." Although he supports more po- lice, Bunting also is a supporter of more funding for sewer. "We need sewer so badly in so many areas in my district," he said. Schroeder said the bill could provide perhaps $15 million statewide. "It's a lot better than nothing," he said, adding that the legislation could provide a measure of relief by the state. Marshall estimated that Wilmington could receive $3 mil- lion, New Castle County could re- ceive $6 million, Sussex County (county and towns) could receive $3 million and Kent County could receive $3 million. Schroeder not- ed that the state has a budget sur- plus, but warned that there will be a mass of legislative suggestions for how to use that money. Still, he remains optimistic. "I think it will get a strong response in the General assembly." Federal rev- enue sharing was a hugely popular program that provided funding to the states for many programs. for rural residential densities, but that the appropriate criteria or standards should be developed in conjunction with the preparation of the Delaware Conservation, Development and Redevelopment Plan and that the maximum rural residential density developed dur- ing the state planning process should be transmitted to the legis- lature for enactment into law."
