New Hanover commission approves more money for ABC Board members

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County Commissioners voted today to pay members of the Alcohol Beverage Control Board more for their work.

The chairman will now get $300 a month, and each member will get $250 a month.

Commission Chair Woody White said he was not comfortable treating the ABC Board differently than other boards; some of which get no compensation. Commissioner Jonathan Barfield praised the board for its work in recent years since controversy led to the commission establish a limit for what members are paid.

In the end White, Barfield and Beth Dawson voted to approve the increase. Commissioner Brian Berger was the lone vote against it.

Commissioner Thomas Wolfe, who serves on the ABC Board, recused himself from the vote.
