Ocean City Considers Proposal To Advertise Resort & Make Money

Members of the Ocean City Town Council are studying a proposal to advertise the resort and possibly make money for the town at the same time. Councilwoman Nancy Howard says the Ocean City logo could be displayed on Maryland license plates, providing free advertising. Drivers normally pay $25 to the Motor Vehicle Administration for plates that promote various organizations, but state officials say the town could charge more and pocket the difference. Council President Joe Mitrecic suggested that council members form a committee to determine the design for the proposed plates.
