Salisbury, MD… Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver has announced that on March 22, 2016, the County will host a public forum on the expansion of the size and number of poultry houses within the County. The event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Midway Room of the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center. Members of the community are encouraged to attend.
“The poultry industry has been a vital part of our economy for decades. With the development of larger poultry houses and the denser clustering of them, many residents of the County have expressed concerns ranging from proximity to developments to environmental impact,” said Culver. “In order to address these concerns in the most factual manner possible, we’ve invited a panel of experts to address these issues and answer questions from the public.”

Panel members will include: a representative for the Maryland Secretary of Agriculture; Hilary D. Miller, Director, Land Management Administration and Gary Kelman, Chief Animal Feeding Operation Program Manager, both representing the Maryland Department of the Environment; and Clifford S. Mitchell, MS, MD, MPH, Director of Environmental Health Bureau, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Participants will also include the County Executive and County Council. For more information, contact the Executive’s Office at 410-548-4801.
