UPDATED – 4:45pm – Barricades have gone up at the end of Rehoboth Avenue to block parking so that restaurants can expand their outdoor dining to allow for proper social distancing.  The City Commissioners recently agreed to allow businesses to expand their outdoor seating by closing down parking spaces along the sidewalk from Second Street to the Bandstand.  Suburban Propane provided the city with 300 barriers.
