DelDOT approves re-installation of Dagsboro’s ‘Welcome’ signs

“Welcome to Dagsboro” signs will be going back up to welcome those entering the town’s limits, following several months of questions as to whether the Delaware Department of Transportation would allow the re-installation of the signs.

Town Administrator Cindi Brought confirmed to the town council at their monthly meeting on Monday, April 15, that DelDOT had finally given their approval, and Rogers Signs would be going ahead with the sign installations along Route 113.

“We’re ready to roll,” Brought said of the update on the signs. “Rogers Signs is doing absolutely everything for us. We got two of the big approvals. We got both signs, which is great. We’re moving right along.”

The council on April 15 also briefly discussed and then approved unanimously proceeding with a resolution to apply to the State of Delaware Downtown Development District Program for Dagsboro to get a designation as a Downtown Development District.

The rough draft of the Town’s 2019-2020 budget was also reviewed and discussed by council members. No substantial issues were raised, but Brought said she felt like there was still some work to do to get a more concrete feel for the budget.

“I feel like the budget is going to be a little bit out of whack this year, because of personnel changes,” Brought said, “which we’ll have to discuss at some point.”

Finally, the council was updated on a meeting Brought had with representatives with Artesian, and she related that they are looking to be ready to serve the Town with water during the first or second quarter of next year.
