WICOMICO CO., Md. - New fee hikes for local restaurants in Wicomico County after the county council voted to increase a number of health department fees.
The fees include septic installation, food licenses and restaurant inspections. We are waiting to hear back from county officials on how much the increases will raise, but the fee hikes take effect on July 1st. Many of these fees have not been raised for seven years.
The other alternative, we're told, was to fire one person due to a five percent increase this year by Governor Martin O'Malley.
