Wicomico County Attorney Paul Wilber says he has been asked to resign.

That’s according to a letter he sent on Friday which said that some members of the council have made that request.

But the Salisbury Daily Times reports that County Executive Bob Culver has asked him to stay on.

County Council President John Cannon told the paper that he had read the letter and “understood what he was saying.”

There has been no vote on the county attorney’s position and Cannon said all department heads will be under consideration at the May 21st meeting.

All of this comes as Culver and the Council have been at loggerheads over whether department heads must be reapproved after an election under a recently approved charter amendment. (Salisbury Independent)
