Scooter Permit Ordinance Could See Changes In Rehoboth Beach

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - One Rehoboth Beach resident may soon have his way when it comes to a scooter permit ordinance.

Currently, the ordinance requires a $40 permit for scooters to park in non-metered areas.

Bill Sargent, a Rehoboth Beach commissioner and chairperson for the Streets and Transportation Committee, says Larry Myslewski, a resident, has been battling the ordinance for about a year, arguing that it prohibited him from parking a scooter on a public street without the $40 permit.

Now, Myslewski is reportedly suggesting that scooters be treated like motorcycles. This would give scooters the option of an "Open Air" permit, which means scooters could be parked on the street in front of their owners' house without having to pay the fee.

"By doing that, they would not have to purchase the $40 scooter permit, which they certainly could if they wanted to park in the preferred parking places," says Sargent. "The scooter permit system is fair and equitable, it would take some inertia to overcome for the commissioners to want to do it."

Sargent says it will be up to Rehoboth's mayor and commissioners to decide whether or not to move any further with the idea. They are reportedly set to discuss the possible change at their work session next Monday, April 7th.
