Frederick County has the green light to pursue new partners for the proposed waste-to-energy incinerator plant. Members of the Carroll County Commissioners signed a letter Thursday to allow the discussions, but the move does not remove Carroll County from the partnership. Frederick County officials welcomed the news.”We have interest from three counties,” said Frederick County Commissioners President Blaine Young. “We haven’t really been able to aggressively pursue that because of the way the contract is written.” Young confirmed that Prince George’s, Howard and Washington counties have expressed interest. Carroll County officials have made it known for months that they intend to pursue other trash-disposal alternatives.
