CHAPTER 36 – APPROPRIATION

AN ACT PROVIDING A DEFICIENCY APPROPRIATION TO THE FERRIS INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL OF DELAWARE FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1941.

WHEREAS, in September 1939, the Board of Trustees of Ferris Industrial School of Delaware was informed by the Boiler Inspector that the Main Boiler of the Power Plant was in such a serious condition that a complete and thorough examination would have to be made at once to determine its fitness for further use; and

WHEREAS a careful examination showed it would be unwise, unsafe, and uneconomical to continue its use; and

WHEREAS remedying this condition without correcting permanently a hazardous and inefficient condition resulting from the auxiliary boiler's location under the main school building would have been uneconomical and short-sighted, involving a continuing hazard and expense and a much greater outlay if corrected as a separate job; and

WHEREAS the Board of Trustees of said School, after consultation with the Permanent Budget Commission and the Governor of this State, installed a proper, safe and modern equipment paying therefor from the current appropriation to the School, and thereby causing a deficiency in its appropriation for the operating of the School for the present fiscal year; NOW THEREFORE

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:

Section 1. That there is hereby appropriated to the Ferris Industrial School of Delaware Twenty-five Thousand Dollars ($25,000.00), the same to be added to the appropriation heretofore made to said School for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1941.

Section 2. This Act is a Supplementary Appropriation Act and the funds hereby appropriated shall be paid out of the General Funds of the State Treasury not otherwise appropriate.

Approved March 14, 1941.
