Liquor License Ban Lifted At Civic Center
Greater Salisbury Committee salutes the efforts of Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver. After decades – literally decades – of getting oh so close to bringing the question of what to do about a deed restriction that limited the Civic Center’s ability to sell alcohol at events in the building – Culver took the bull by the horns. And he took on the deed restriction. As it turns out, the bull had no real kick to it. Not ONE public comment was made in opposition to ending this decade’s old ban. A deed review by stellar attorney Paul Wilber found an opening. Our County Liquor Board took a courageous vote. And the Maryland General Assembly passed a bill. And now, as a fully functioning Civic Center, one that sells beer and wine, it can more fully compete on the regional stage for acts and entertainment. Another step forward for our community.
