“We’re looking at it as an asset the community would enjoy,” City Manager Marcia Glick said.

She said the municipal liquor store has committed $100,000 in proceeds and an anonymous donor plans to donate another $100,000 for naming rights. Now, Murphy’s $7,000 donation — the first time a city leader has donated his or her salary, Glick said — will help get the project even closer to reality.

“It’s significant. He’s donating his entire salary,” longtime city band director Mike Serber said. “It’s great he’s showing his support this way.”
