SCAOR Rental Affairs Committee and Coastal Municipalities gather for 3rd annual Pre-Season Meeting

Lewes, DE, May 4, 2017:  The 3rd annual Pre-Season Meeting with SCAOR’s Rental Affairs Committee (RAC) and the Coastal Communities of Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, South Bethany, and Fenwick Island, as well as Millville, Ocean View, and Milton, took place on May 4th at Irish Eyes in Lewes.  Sharon Palmer-Stauffer, Rental Manager for Coldwell Banker Resort Realty, and Chair of the RAC stated of the Pre-Season Meeting, “Today’s meeting was an excellent example of realtors and its local members of law and code enforcement officers working together for the good of the communities in which they serve. It was a very productive and informative meeting.”

Each town that participated had an opportunity to share with the group any seasonal issues they encounter and their solutions and proposals set forth to address the issues.  The exchange of ideas between municipalities and the RAC is valuable and lends itself to the strengthening of this collaborative group.  Councilman Frank Twardzik (Ocean View) stated, “For our quiet area of the resort(s) to be included in these conversations is important in learning the trends, concerns, and pulses of the surrounding coastal communities; I am glad to have the opportunity to participate.” Vice Mayor Lew Killmer (Bethany) added, “To bring the various coastal area officials and law enforcement together at the beginning of the season provides a tremendous opportunity to share ideas, gain insight to what your neighbors are facing and doing, and reassurance that everyone is on the same page.”  

Included in this Pre-Season meeting were law enforcement representatives of each town, as well.  Chief Keith Banks (Rehoboth) enthusiastically commended the efforts of the RAC and municipalities and stated, “…to have the opportunity to work together, that is the only way we are going to be successful. By working with each other we will be able to enforce [ordinances] properly and evenly. Again, it is a team effort.” Chief Banks also stated that he is extremely fortunate to work in Rehoboth and with a group of Realtors that he can count on to be able to call, and they call him, whenever there is any concern.
