APPROPRIATION - DELAWARE COMMISSION FOR FEEBLE MINDED FOR ESTABLISHMENT OF DIETARY CONTROL DEPARTMENT AT DELAWARE COLONY

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 137, VOLUME 48, LAWS OF DELAWARE, 1951, ENTITLED "AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION TO DELAWARE COMMISSION FOR THE FEEBLE MINDED TO PROVIDE FOR THE ERECTION AND EQUIPMENT OF CERTAIN BUILDINGS IN CONNECTION WITH THE STATE INSTITUTION FOR FEEBLE MINDED AT DELAWARE COLONY."

WHEREAS, upon estimations made and received from a well-known and reputable architect, the sum of one hundred twenty-five thousand dollars ($125,000.00) originally appropriated for a centralized kitchen at Delaware Colony, under the provisions of Chapter 137, Volume 48, Laws of Delaware, 1951, is insufficient to erect, construct and equip a central kitchen at Delaware Colony, The State Training School, Stockley, Delaware, with capacity for preparing meals for present patient population; with an employees' dining room to serve present employee population, together with furniture and equipment for the same; and

WHEREAS, the erection, construction and the equipping of any centralized kitchen for Delaware Colony, the State Training School, Stockley, Delaware, would be inadequate, insufficient and very expensive in meeting the needs of the aforesaid Delaware Colony, according to the present geographical lay-out of said Delaware Colony, The State Training School; and

WHEREAS, the Delaware Commission for Feebleminded recognizes such existing conditions, as above stated, and has by appropriate action affirmed its belief therein; NOW, THEREFORE,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. Section 1 of Chapter 137, Volume 48, Laws of Delaware, 1951, is amended by striking out all of Section 1 and substituting in lieu thereof the following:

Section 1. The sum of one hundred twenty-five thousand dollars ($125,000.00) is hereby appropriated to Delaware Commission for Feebleminded for the redesigning, reconstructing and replacing furniture and equipment necessary to establish the Dietary Control Department at Delaware Colony, The State Training School, in accordance with the accepted standards for dietary control as established by the American Association on Mental Deficiency.

Approved May 25, 1953.
