22 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 29 - September 4, 1997 Dewey mayor takes beach replenishment case to Congress By Michael Short The Mid-Atlantic Coastal Part- nership met with members of Congress this summer in an effort to shore up support for beach re- plenishment. With representatives from five states, including Dewey Beach Mayor Bob Frederick, the group has tried to use its political influ- ence to make sure that beach re- plenishment projects, like the on- again, off-again Rehoboth Beach- Dewey Beach project, become re- ality. The response was "overwhelm- ing and supportive," according to Frederick. The group developed several specific goals during its visit. Tom Gagliano, a former New Jersey senator and currently the president of a New Jersey public and gov- ernment affairs business, S. Thomas Gagliano Associates, said the group agreed to sponsor a Washington D.C. conference on beach issues in the spring, 1998. "The idea is to keep coastal is- sues in focus as much as we can," Gagliano said. Frederick said another goal is to continue to educate Clinton ad- ministration officials while Gagliano said the House of Repre- sentatives has decided to hold hearings to discuss the Shore Pro- tection Act of 1996. Those oversight hearings are expected to include the issue of whether or not the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers funds beach replenishment, an issue which has proven to be the largest key in the current debate.

Expected initial cost would be $8,692,000 (with continued maintenance replenish- ment planned) and plans would include dune fence, dune grass and a first for Rehoboth Beach, a dune line the length of the beach. The mission statement for the Coastal Partnership states that New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia will combine efforts "in promot- ing the preservation of our shore- lines and beaches through the con- tinuation of federal, state and local funding and the advancement of techniques and innovative meth- ods of shore protection. The partnership will work to as- sure the federal government will continue to fund shore protection; to maintain the involvement of the U.S: Army Corps of Engineers in the areas of storm damage reduc- tion and flood protection through its continuing authorities' pro- grams, planning and construction projects and to educate the public and advocate the economic bene- fits of shore protection on a re- gional and national level."
