Milton Library Bid
Special to Sussex County Online
GEORGETOWN -- Sussex County Council accepted a bid to design the Milton Public Library expansion from a Wilmington architectural firm at its regular meeting on Tuesday, May 2, 2000.
Council accepted the bid from Weymouth Architects and Planners of Wilmington. Council received three bids but none from Sussex County, according to County Engineer Michael Izzo.
The county has been granted $300,000 from the state providing it matches the grant. Council will also seek an additional $32,000 for other expenditures.
The library's first floor will be expanded and include a foundation strong enough to hold a second floor if the need arises in the future, according to County Administrator Robert "Bob" Stickels.
The first floor expansion will provide storage, library space and a public meeting area with a separate entrance. No construction date has been set.EPA Honoring Wastewater Facility
The South Coastal Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility will receive the EPA's Operation and Maintenance Excellence Award for EPA Region 3, according to Stickels.
The award will be presented during a ceremony in the Environmental Training Center at Delaware Technical and Community College in Georgetown on Thursday, May 11, 2000 at 11:30 a.m. Stickels hopes many people will attend the event.
"I believe it (the award) demonstrates Sussex County's commitment to maintaining a clean environment," Stickels said. He added that most of the credit belongs to the workers at the treatment facility and the leadership of Heather Sheridan and Loran George.
Region 3 includes Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., Stickels said.Site Plans, Sketches Now Required
