The proposed Havre de Grace commemorative license plate will cost just $25 and the city will not profit from its sale.
According to City Council President Bill Martin, the proposed plate—to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812—will not generate any funds for the city as it was decided the plates will cost only enough to cover their production.
Within hours of the posting of a Patch article Monday morning, the city had 80 residents registered to purchase the plates. A minimum of 25 commitments was needed to send the plates to production.
The license plate commemorates the War of 1812's bicentennial in Havre de Grace. The war actually took place in Havre de Grace in May 1813, when British troops came ashore near the location of the Concord Point Lighthouse.
