Frederick County commissioners and residents opposed to building an incinerator in the county continue to hash out the issue via multiple e-mail exchanges. The daily exchange intensified this week following a July 24 Gazette story that said a recent presentation praising recycling programs in Boulder, Colo., did little to convince commissioners John ‘‘Lennie” Thompson Jr. (R) and Charles A. Jenkins (R), that building an incinerator, or waste-to-energy facility, is wrong for the county.
For the first time, Thompson found himself drawn into the back-and-forth e-mail exchanges, when his comments were questioned by incinerator opponents.
