Morning Thread

Here's a bit of a local story. Dewey Beach was incorporated in 1981 and its charter specifically limits what kinds of taxes may be levied. To make up the shortfall, the town has been charging high fees for licenses, inspections and such. Now, a local businessman is contesting those fees, alleging that they are, in effect, taxes prohibited by the charter. The businessman, Alex Pires, ran for the Senate against Carper last go around. 

Yannow, somebody has to pay something, sometime.
