SNOW HILL- Snow Hill Mayor Charlie Dorman made a plea for video lottery funding as he approached county officials with his town’s annual budget request last week.
Dorman told the Worcester County Commissioners Snow Hill was seeking its usual $450,000 grant from the county for fiscal year 2018, but again advocated for Snow Hill and Pocomoke to receive some of the slots revenue associated with the Casino at Ocean Downs.
“Just give Snow Hill and Pocomoke 1 percent,” Dorman said. “One percent would help.”
He told the commissioners the town’s activity was beginning to increase, as seven new businesses had opened since 2015 and four more were underway.
“Some of you might think we’re a lost cause but we’re not,” he said.
