Dewey Beach sued over business license fees

Dewey Beach is being sued over its fees for business licenses.

A group of businesses has gone to court, claiming their license fees are exorbitant compared to those in other resort towns.

The suit says Dewey Beach also used the funds gathered through business license fees for purposes not allowed.

The plaintiffs are asking the Court of Chancery for restitution of business license fees paid since 2007.
