Dewey Beach Town Council Votes Against Tax Referendum

Posted: Updated:

DEWEY BEACH, Del. - The Dewey Beach Town Council has voted against a motion to hold a gross receipts tax referendum in September.

The decision came after a heated public hearing on Friday, in an attempt to resolve some of Dewey's ongoing financial challenges. Budget and Finance Committee (B&F) Member Mike Dunmyer said he regretted the gross receipts tax proposal, and referred to it as a mistake and a bad idea that would leave everyone in the town worse off. Dunmyer was one of the many people that took the time to speak at the public hearing.

The final outcome involved a commitment by Mauler and Steve "Monty" Montgomery, on behalf of the Dewey Business Partnership, to discuss the issue in September, after the close of the summer season, and formulate a better plan for the community by start of March 2014.
