Seaford hopes agreement will provide new income

Seaford's City Council members voted to proceed with a plan that would put the city in partnership with a utilities company in the generation of electricity.
Council members hope that the partnership will eventually provide a new source of revenue for the city.

David H. Thomas, power manager for Seaford, was present at the most recent City Council meeting. He has been talking with representatives from Chesapeake Utilities about an agreement that would have Chesapeake purchasing three generators that would be installed in the city's power plant along the Nanticoke River. City employees would operate the generators and the two partners would share the profits from the sale of electric in the deregulated market.
