Carroll County’s commissioners Tuesday night publicy reviewed whether to continue a partnership with Frederick County to build a waste-to-energy incinerator plant in Frederick before about 150 concerned residents. The commissioners heard from a variety of groups, ranging from those who were in favor of waste-to-energy to those offering more environmentally friendly alternatives — including composting. The groups were invited to speak at a forum at Carroll Community College in Westminster. The meeting was called as Carroll County’s commissioners debate the idea of moving forward with the plan.
