On March 17, the Sussex County Board of Supervisors and Sussex County Planning Commission held a joint public hearing on an unwarranted and overly restrictive proposed ordinance that would have limited shooting in Sussex County with the intent to drive organized shooting out of the county. Over the years, the county Board of Supervisors has consistently rejected similar proposals from the Planning Commission due to their negative impact on sportsmen, shooters and business in the county. This past March, the ordinance failed by a 3 to 3 vote. Yet despite all the rejections, and without proper notice to the public, the county Planning Commission has scheduled a hearing the rehash this proposal on Monday, July 11 at 6:00 pm in the General District Courtroom, Sussex Judicial Center, 15098 Courthouse Road in Sussex.
