Proposed Capital Improvement Plan creates ‘game plan’ for Wicomico County in coming years

WICOMICO COUNTY, Md. – In Wicomico County, community members got the chance to hear about what’s in store for the future Wednesday evening.

Acting Wicomico County Executive John Psota held a public hearing for the Capital Improvement Plan for Fiscal Years 2023-2027. At the meeting, community members were able to weigh in on what’s in store for the coming years. The plan gives the county a blueprint for what money will be needed for capital costs, which includes things like repairing roads and renovating or constructing new buildings.

We’re told, the plan allows the county to reach several goals they want to accomplish.

“The education factor between the board of education and Wor-Wic. We have the public factor of association with Recs & Parks and the Civic Center. Then, there is public safety. We also have stuff for corrections and emergency services,” Wicomico County Finance Director Pamela Oland said.

According to the proposed plan, $12 million of the General Fund for Fiscal Year 20-23 will to go the Board of Education. $10 million of that is going towards renovations to the Mardela Middle and High School.

The plan will now be submitted to the Wicomico County Council in December for review.
