CAPE G, Friday, May 30 - June 5, 199/- 49 Delmarva Power announces consolidation of district offices Delmarva Power announced last week that it plans to consoli- date several district offices into six operating centers by the end of 1998. The offices in Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City, Chestertown, St. Michael's, Cambridge and West- over, Md., will be merged into op- erating centers located in Chris- tiana and Millsboro, and in Salis- bury, Centreville and North East, Md. and in Exmore, Va. The Harrington office will function as a satellite operating center. The operating centers will con- solidate field-related resources such as engineering, construction, maintenance and meter reading. "By merging our offices, we are streamlining our operations, which will allow us to operate more efficiently," said Jay Mason, a Delmarva Power spokesperson. "We remain committed to main- taining a strong community pres- ence while continuing our tradi- tion of delivering safe, reliable en- ergy to our customers." In October, 1996, the company decided it would no longer accept customers' bill payments at dis- trict offices after 1998. During the next 18 month, to increase cus- tomer convenience, the company plans to expand the number of lo- cations, such as Acme Markets, Shore Stops and Thriftways, that accept Delmarva Power pay- ments. Customers can call the company 24 hours a day, seven days a week at (800) 375-7117 to obtain their account information, request ser- vice or report a service emer- gency. Mason said that consolidating field-related resources into operat- ing centers is expected to elimi. nate approximately 100 positions. The company plans to sell those offices that will close by the end of 1998. Delaware Bankers Association elects officers for 1997-98 J.

The restaurant may be in the same location, on the Boardwalk at the end of Garfield Parkway, but it has changed in almost every other way. ?Sometimes change is inevitable," said owner Debbie Reilly. "In this case, change is good." The dark wood hues have been replaced in favor of white walls decorated with prints of shells, flamingos and beach grass, and teal and mauve serve as accent colors which bring out the view of the beach and boardwalk. Gone also are the outside food booths which had adjoined the boardwalk. The new snack bar and deli are located in the west wing near the steps that go up from Garfield Parkway, and the two double doors that lead to the snack bar area will almost always be open to accommodate those who want a quick meal. "I think the Holiday House is a Bethany Beach landmark, a mon- ument at the beach," said Reilly. "People always say, 'meet me by the Holiday House.' Now I hope they will say, 'meet me at Bethany's.'"
