Bond bill Continued from page 9 treatment plant serving Rehoboth Beach, but he said this is impor- tant. "If we don't start taking some steps tO address this, then we will just continue to tread wa- ter on this whole issue," he said. "It's a giant step in the right direc- tion, but we still need to get to the other sources." Here is a look at some of the other items funded in this year's bond bill. $200,000 for the Rehoboth Beach Library. $1 million for critical repairs iransfer tax Continued from page 9 Beach and Bethany will fall in af- ter them. "I will be able to see my small towns get at least $15,000. Going from $0 to $15,000 won't bother anybody." Sussex County will give $15,000 to any municipality that does not earn at least $20,000 in transfer taxes of its own. South Bethany and Fenwick Island have already introduced transfer tax in- crease ordinances of their own to be ready to take advantage of a positive General Assembly vote. Rep. John Schroeder, D-Lewes, sits on the side of Legislative Hall that approved the real estate trans- fer tax initiative weeks ago. He knows the Delaware bugaboo Silver Lake Continued from page 16 Leslie Berger, Judith Mandell, and Elson and Richard Mandell, filed an appeal with the Supreme Court in June 1997, but then with- drew the appeal that August. The latest movement ts the re- sult of a request by the homeown- ers last summer to revisit Jacobs' 1992 Chancery Court decision, in which Jacobs determined that Lake Drive was a dedicated public and common highway. Marte Tiilman, a resident of in the Delaware Seashore State Park Marina. The marina is begin- ning to deteriorate and has much- needed improvements. $125,000 for the Center for the Inland Bays (CIB). There is also $200,000 to cost-share farming ef- forts to cut pollution, such as ma- nure storage sheds. The combina- tion of that funding, plus $1.6 mil- lion in matching state funds for a federal program called the Con- servation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) and the $600,000 to stop the sewer dis- charge into Indian River Inlet, left Schroeder happy that steps are be- ing taken to preserve the inland bays. "It's a great beginning. If we about designating funds for "rev- enue sharing" and felt that the shifting of transfer taxes that are already collected was a high road to sharing. "The numbers are extremely positive for Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey and other resort areas that have highly valued properties," he said. "The small towns will also be helped and the unincorporated areas will gain from what the county does with that money." Bunting pointed out that basing revenue sharing on property trans- fers is much more equitable than using a per capita base. "With so many of our residents being part time, we make out much better with money coming from property sales than from. a head count of year-round resi- defits," he said. Chesapeake Street who spear- headed opposition to closure of the public path, said she is stunned and disappointed by the ruling. "A public path is the most rea- sonable, sensible and responsible course to take with this property in order to allow passage along all shores of Silver Lake and to pro- tect its ecological balance," she said. Titlman said she and other concerned residents, who she esti- mates have already dedicated more than a thousand volunteer hours to pursue the cause, intend to continue on their mission to keep the path public.
