"Donald Ralph has served since 1979 and he's done a very good job," said Sussex County Council President Dale Dukes. "He has represented the agricultural com- munity very well."

In addition to the other streets, the new grant proposal could include the remainder of Hebron Road. If the housing authority grants approval for the water improve- ments in West Rehoboth, funding will be available to subsidize or absorb hookup costs for qualify- ing homeowners. Homeowners would be respon- sible for quarterly, usage-based, water bills that, according to Re- hoboth Beach City Manager Greg Ferrese, average about $40 per quarter. Prior to the vote, some citizens expressed concern that in spite of the hookup subsidy programs, the $1,100 to $1,600 hookup fees would be cost prohibitive for most families. "Any human being wants to live decently," said Janine Hamilton, who said she supports the commu- nity seeking the funding. "The majority of people who are here are on welfare; they're on fixed incomes. Needs aren't being met. "It's something that I want, but a lot of people fear that there will be a lien against their homes, or they'll lose their homes. People are worried about that. They need that reassurance." "She's got a valid, good point," said A1 Phillips, Sussex County Community Development & Housing Division rehabilitation specialist. "I can understand that." However, he said, liens will not be placed against homes. "Before [previous grant programs], they looked at it as a rehabilitation loan. There will be no lien. I can assure you of that." Should the grant be approved, the City of Rehoboth Beach will provide some in-kind ser- vices, said LeCates. Ferrese said that the city could also waive cap fees through grant funding it would re- LECATES ceive. If West Rehoboth wins the grant, the city will also install fire hydrants. "The city is part of the answer, if the community wants it," said Mayor Sam Cooper. "We want to be of help if we can."

GAZETTE, Friday, December and County Councilman George Collins, who announced that he won't seek a third term, asked Hastings to consider the elected post. HASTINGS "It is going to be a learning experience. I am sure it will be very rewarding. I am going to go into it hoping to learn and contribute."

Hastings' appointment received no negative votes and Dukes said "Hastings will be a great addition to the Planning and Zoning Com- mission." County Councilman George Cole abstained, but he stressed that his decision was only because of his recent difficulty when he tried to nominate a person to serve on the planning and zoning board. He ac- cused every county council mem- ber but Collins of playing "good old boy" politics with his nomina- tion attempt. But Cole stressed that he is not opposed to Hastings and thinks he will do a fine job.
