The New Hanover County Commission had planned to use their meeting tonight to ask the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board questions about how the salaries for its top two administrators had gotten so high. Instead, commissioners will be looking for new board members after the three current ABC Board members resigned.
In a letter to the County Commission, board members Charles Wells, Richard Hanson and Stephen Culbreth wrote, “The divisiveness of the continuing disputed becomes more insidious and disruptive of the functioning of the ABC system. We hope our resignations will remove the pall of misunderstanding and enable you to appoint a new Board.”
The resignations, according to the letter, are effective at noon tomorrow.
Stay tuned to WWAY NewsChannel 3 throughout the day for more information about the resignations and more from tonight’s County Commission meeting.
