CHAPTER 46

FORMERLY

SENATE BILL NO. 118

AN ACT MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE BOWERS BEACH VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY.

WHEREAS, the Bowers Beach Volunteer Fire Company was recently destroyed by an act of arson, the last of which included the entire fire hall, vital records, and destruction of several pieces of equipment; and

WHEREAS, the insurance coverage on the building and equipment win not cover the extensive loss incurred by the fire; and

WHEREAS, federal aid is being sought at the present time; however, to date no favorable consideration has been made manifest; and

WHEREAS, economically speaking the Bowers Beach community is not a wealthy area and consequently, volunteer contributions are not expected to be of a substantial nature.

NOW, THEREFORE:

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE (Three-quarters of all members elected to each House thereof concurring therein):

Section 1. The sum of ;25,000 is hereby appropriated to the Bowers Beach Volunteer Fire Company to assist the company in its efforts to restore the loss incurred by the fire.

Section 2. This is a supplementary appropriation and the funds herein appropriated shall be paid by the State Treasurer from the General Fund monies not otherwise appropriated. Any funds remaining unexpended or unencumbered as of June 30, 1979 shall revert to the General Fund of the State of Delaware.

Approved May 29, 1979.
