— Ce­cil County’s all-Repub­li­can del­e­ga­tion to An­napo­lis, led by Del­e­gate Kevin Hornberger (R-Ce­cil), is tak­ing some­what of a bold move this fall, ask­ing Gov. Larry Ho­gan to in­clude nearly $11 mil­lion in his cap­i­tal bud­get to di­rectly ben­e­fit Ce­cil County.

“I’m plan­ning to meet with some of Ho­gan’s staff in about two weeks to go over our re­quest,” Hornberger said Thurs­day.

It in­cludes up to $11 mil­lion in cap­i­tal bud­get re­quests that would ben­e­fit projects in Ris­ing Sun, at the Bain­bridge prop­erty in Port De­posit and at NorthBay Ad­ven­ture Camp near North East.

Hornberger said he’s seen some “un­used pots of money” at the state level dur­ing his two years in the Gen­eral As­sem­bly.

“I just wanted to put it out there,” he said, adding, “the gov­er­nor doesn’t know what he doesn’t know.”

The del­e­ga­tion’s re­quest in­cludes $8.5 mil­lion to fund eight miles of pipe­line for Ris­ing Sun’s new wa­ter sys­tem, on be­half of the town of Ris­ing Sun. It also seeks $840,000 for in­stal­la­tion of a grav­ity sewer pipe along Route 222 to pro­vide pub­lic sewer ser­vice to Bain­bridge, on be­half of the Bain­bridge De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (BDC), and an­other $400,000 to $1 mil­lion
