With the latest dust up over alcohol at the National Folk Festival by Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver the city of Salisbury may look at getting a separate liquor board.

Council member Muir Boda told WBOC that it would fit in with the one stop shop for business.

Culver accused Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot’s office of violating the law by providing a wine and beer festival permit for the event.

The comptroller’s office said…what it was legal and necessary because of delays by the county liquor board for the festival.

The proposal could come up at the next council meeting on September 23rd but would still need state approval.
