It may be time for a course of action to get things done in Salisbury in regards to our City Council and the towing industry in my opinion should make a bold move. The rates that the City want to limit these tow companies to charge people are not fair at all, and while I am not in favor of bilking people in towing bills there has to be some compromise where everyone walks away happy.
I think the local towing companies should work together and refuse to make any runs into the City limits for a period of 48 hours to get the point across that they need to be heard on the problems the towing ordinance as written will cause them financially. Let cars get stuck on the side of the road with nobody coming to get the roads cleared and see how long the public would tolerate this nonsense on the Council.

The old Salisbury Fire Headquarters downtown was in the paper again over the weekend in regards to properties around the City that sit vacant waiting for the City Council to decide what if anything they would be willing to approve for it's use. I have really mixed emotions but one thing I have to see above all, and that is that this Historic building stay like it is for future generations to appreciate. My opinion has changed greatly since starting my HistoricSalisburymaryland.blogspot.com site and learning more of our rich heritage downtown.
The best thing would be for this to become a fire themed restaurant like Station 7 in Pittsville. This would make a happening location with the right management and menu and people would come to it which would in turn bring renewed interest in Downtown.
