Dewey approves capital improvements
Addressing parking, lighting and town hall air conditioning issues, Dewey town council approved $37,000 worth of capital improvements during its Nov. 11 council meeting. Council began by approving $6,450 to have Atlantic Refrigeration and Air Conditioning install a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit for the police department.

Next, council approved $2,600 to have Shore Electric install new electrical outlets on 20 light poles in the Route 1 median.
The final approval, for $27,800, was given to New Jersey-based Parkeon for the installation of four new multi-purpose parking permit machines – one on Van Dyke Avenue, two on Dickinson Avenue and one on Dagsworthy Avenue. The four new machines will replace seven old machines that are no longer being made.
