Council Cancels Prime Time Meeting

Sussex County Council's Aug. 19 meeting, which was to be its first night-time meeting, has been canceled due to lack of agenda items. The next council meeting will be Tuesday, Aug. 26 at 10 a.m. The first night meeting will now be held on Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Council member George Cole moved to cancel the Aug. 19 meeting "instead of having a big failure" for the first night-meeting, for which there was virtually no business for the council to consider. The September meeting, however, is already shaping up to have a full agenda.

The workshop will be held in a large tent on the parking lot at the south side of the bridge near the bathhouse. A large model of the proposed bridge will be featured, as well as displays and information on proposed improvements to the state park, access roads and landscaping.

The bridge model will be unveiled at 5:30 p.m.

Sept. 11 Memorial Planned

County Administrator Robert Stickels announced plans for a memorial service on The Circle in Georgetown to be held on Thursday, Sept. 11, 2003 at 10 a.m. The event will feature tributes to firefighters and other public safety personnel.
