The Commssion's statutory authority is in 24 Del. C., Chapter 29.


The Commission meets the second Thursday of each month at 9:00 a.m. All meetings are open to the general public and are held in the Cannon Building, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, in Dover.

To ensure that business (such as a license application) is on the agenda for the Commission's consideration at its next meeting, submit all documentation to the Commission office no later than 4:30 PM ten full working days before the meeting date.
