CHAPTER 430

AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION TO MILFORD SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONSTRUCTING SIDEWALKS AND ACQUIRING THE NECESSARY RIGHTS-OF-WAY THEREFOR WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AT SPECIFIED LOCATIONS.

WHEREAS, the policy of the State Board of Education established on February 27, 1967, precludes approval of off-school site sidewalks for inclusion in School Construction Bond Authorization Acts; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to the provisions of Section 2305 of Title 14, Delaware Code, the Board of School Directors of the Milford School District has made a careful examination of the transportation facilities, the frequency of exposure to traffic hazards and the possible existence of mechanical hazards which might affect the safety of pupils in the district and has determined the need for sidewalks leading to the Milford Senior High School site as hereinafter set out; and

WHEREAS, the State Highway Department and the State Board of Education after reviewing and considering the factors required by the provisions of Section 2305 of Title 14, Delaware Code, have indicated their approval in writing of this program for the construction of sidewalks leading to said school site; and

NOW, THEREFORE;
