The Cape Charles Town Council reappointed John Burdiss to serve as the Cape Charles representative on the Joint Industrial Development Authority of Northampton County and Its Incorporated Towns (Joint IDA). The Joint Industrial Development Authority of Northampton County and Its Incorporated Towns (Joint IDA) was formed in 1995 to administer development of a network of industrial facilities throughout Northampton County’s participating towns. The Board is made up of seven members who serve a term of four (4) years.
While Burdiss has been serving on the IDA since filling in for Phil Custis in 2009, Mayor Proto noted that the Town rarely if ever receives reporting on the IDA activities from Burdiss. Although not included in the motion, Mayor Proto requested that Town Manager Manuel schedule a more regular reporting schedule from Burdiss.
The appointment was by a vote of 4 to 1, with Wendell voting ‘No’.
