SALISBURY – Officials in Wicomico County this week made a supplemental appropriation of $212,400 to cover Wor-Wic Community College’s operating expenses for the remainder of the fiscal year.
In a legislative session of the Wicomico County Council Tuesday, officials agreed to transfer $212,400 in contingencies to the community college.
Ray Hoy, president of Wor-Wic, came before the Worcester County Commissioners and Wicomico County Council once in February to seek funds for a $600,000 shortfall. Though Worcester County provided the money upfront, officials in Wicomico County gave the money in two parts.
While Worcester County contributed its full $175,000, Wicomico County provided $212,400.
