Rehoboth Beach has a new mayor-elect, after he handily won election over the weekend.

City of Rehoboth Beach officials are prepared to press ahead with the ocean outfall project after receiving several bids.

 

They are claiming the $52.5 million pipe that will dump treated wastewater into the Atlantic Ocean will be over-budget, giving the city a reason to potentially go with the lowest bidder for the project.
