Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver says he wants the Council to consider term limits for its members as well as for his position.

By yesterday afternoon the council said it wasn’t time yet for such a discussion.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the council statement said with the council elections more than a year away it had not gotten around yet to looking at possible charter amendments.

Culver said that he has pushed for them in the past and would like to see local voters have their say.

The county executive said that the issue had been brought up back in 2012 but the paper said it found that not to be correct.

The Daily Times also reports that the council members said it was not clear why there was an urgency for term limits adding that Culver did not bring up the subject in 2016.
