Liquor Board chooses another bank handle finances



The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, also known as the liquor board, agreed Wednesday to allow another bank to handle its finances.

Debi Kirk, liquor board administrator, said the liquor board will transfer its money from M&T Bank to First United Bank & Trust in Hagerstown to get a better interest rate.

Kirk said First United offers a 0.53 percent interest rate, compared to the 0.45 percent interest rate offered by M&T.

The liquor board's budget for fiscal year 2010, which begins July 1, is $229,190.40.

Cody said after the hearing he wants to transfer the license because he would like to retire.

Kotadia, who lives in Virginia, said he intends to retain the Liquor Locker's current employees if the liquor license transfer is granted.
