Big water users, register
Delmar residents who use a high volume of water must register every year at Delmar Town Hall prior to Aug. 15 to be evaluated for a sewer charge reduction in the utility bill for June, July and August.
A high volume user would be a customer that has a pool, garden and/or excessive shrubbery and flowers.

Ordinance being revised
The town of Delmar is revising the current sign ordinance. According to town representatives, the ordinance will promote health, safety and general welfare of the residents of the town of Delmar.
The new sign ordinance will restrict or eliminate signs "tending to depreciate the value of property and prevent actual or potential hazards to pedestrians and motor vehicle operators within the town."
There will be proper notice before this ordinance will be enforced.

Roads to be swept
Wicomico County's Public Works Roads Division will be sweeping the roads on Monday or Tuesday during the third weeks of May, August and November.
