SALISBURY – The Wicomico County Council will bring development impact fees to a vote after members agreed to advance the proposed repeal Tuesday.
Councilmembers voted 7-0 to move the repeal forward for a final vote at a public hearing in an October meeting, where discussions will precede the decision.
The repeal will take 60 days to pass if the councilmembers vote in favor.
This news comes after proposals from County Executive Bob Culver to repeal impact fees in an effort to stimulate new home construction and economic growth.
Councilmembers agreed to place a moratorium on impact fees through 2016, but have since opened the proposal for discussion.
