CHAPTER 156

OCEAN VIEW

AN ACT TO AMEND AN ACT ENTITLED "AN ACT TO INCORPORATE THE TOWN OF OCEAN VIEW IN SUSSEX COUNTY, DELAWARE", THE SAME BEING CHAPTER 649, VOLUME 18, LAWS OF DELAWARE, AS AMENDED BY REDUCING THE NUMBER OF PERSONS ON THE TOWN COUNCIL.

Be it enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met (two-thirds of all the members elected to each branch of the General Assembly concurring therein):

That Section 2, Chapter 649, Volume 18, Laws of Delaware, be, and the same is hereby, amended by striking out and repealing the first two sentences of the said Section 2, and by substituting in lieu thereof the following language:

"Section 2. There shall be a Council of the Town of Ocean View to be composed of three members, one of whom shall be elected president of said council for the term of one year and until his successor shall be elected. The town council shall be reduced from nine members, as has heretofore been required, by simply electing one person at each election hereafter, instead of electing three members as were heretofore required, and by filling no vacancies on the town council, whether by death, resignation or for incapability, so long as there is at least one member elected for one year, at least one member for two years, and at least one member for three years. Thus the city council will gradually be reduced over a period which may be as long as three years until the members of the council are three in number. Thereafter the number shall remain the same."

Approved April 3, 1947.
