REHOBOTH RESIDENTS: The City of Rehoboth Beach is partnering with the Delaware Solid Waste Authority to host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the parking lot behind the Rehoboth Beach Fire Department (219 Rehoboth Ave.). What a help during this Spring Cleaning Season! Here is a list of what is and is not acceptable during the event:
The new law repeals the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) authority to increase premium rates when a property is sold. It also refunds the excessive premium to those who bought a property before FEMA warned them of the rate increase.
The bill limits premium increases to 18 percent annually on newer properties and 25 percent for some older ones. The Senate approved the bill on March 13, and the House of Representatives on March 4.
Said NAR President Steve Brown after the bill was signed by the president: "As the leading advocate for home and property owners, NAR applauds this bill for the relief and protection it will bring to businesses and families nationwide who are experiencing financial hardship because of the extreme and sudden premium increases."
The 24th Annual Rehoboth Chocolate Festival will be held on Saturday, March 1, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Rehoboth Convention Center. Last year, over 2,300 attendees turned out to experience the delectable creations of more than 225 restaurateurs, chefs, bakers – both professional and amateur – and bakers under 12. Categories for the event are cookies, brownies, pies, cheesecakes, candy, cake and most unusual.
All entries must be received at the Convention Center between 7 a.m.-8:30 a.m. on the morning of the festival. Entry forms may be found by clicking here. (Late entries cannot be judged but are welcome and appreciated as part of the taste samples.) Judging will begin at 9:15 a.m. and winners will be announced prior to festival opening to the public at 11:30 a.m.
