At that time, Mayor Walter Curran and Councilman Tom Maly were sworn in to new terms, vowing “to place the public interest above any special or personal interest, and to respect the right of future generations to share the rich, historic and natural heritage of Delaware.”

Following the swearings-in, Maly was appointed unanimously by council as mayor pro-tem.

Additionally, the council approved the meeting schedule for the next year, which includes no August meeting and tentatively scheduled monthly workshops.

With the recent resignation of Gary Meredith from the Planning & Zoning Commission, Curran recommended he be replaced by Kent Liddle, who once served on the commission but resigned to run for town council. Liddle was appointed unanimously.

The council also reappointed Don Walsh, Baptist Damiano and Steve Cobb to the Board of Elections, each for three-year terms. Richard Birkmeyer and Marilynn Sheetz were reappointed as alternate commissioners to the Board of Elections for three-year terms.

Sue Kerwin was reappointed to the Board of Adjustment for a three-year term and Pat Sharpe was reappointed to the Planning & Zoning Commission for a five-year term.

The council will hold its next regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 9.
