Wicomico County Budget Boosts Education Dollars

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - After the Wicomico County budget passed earlier this week WMDT spoke with County Executive Rick Pollitt about some of the changes.

According to Pollitt, Wicomico County is in better financial standing this year than last.

Better standing allows the county to start rebuilding programs that previously faced cuts, like education.

"We put in nearly $3 million to go toward school security so that we can beef up the physical safety of all of our schools also to provide increased technology for all of the schools," says Pollitt.


Another area that received a boost: Meals On Wheels.  After facing major federal cuts, Pollitt says the county is committed to helping to feed its sick and elderly.
