The Carroll County Board of Commissioners took a first public step toward getting out of a deal to build a waste-to-energy incinerator with Frederick County Thursday by drafting a letter to the Frederick board encouraging them to find another partner to take Carroll’s place. Board President Doug Howard, R-District 5, said it was his understanding that the Frederick Board of Commissioners was drafting a similar document Thursday that would grant Carroll freedom to pursue alternative methods of solid waste management. “This should not be construed as the ultimate decision, but a step forward where we can each begin to explore things in a broader way,” Howard said.
