Legal action will not delay the permitting and designing process of an incinerator in Frederick County, according to a county official. Michael G. Marschner, director of the county’s Division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management, said this week the process will continue despite an appeal filed in Circuit Court Friday. “The [Board of County Commissioners] have already signed agreements with the Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority and they have been working on the design and permitting process,” Marschner said. “It’s a long process and they [NMWDA] have been instructed to do so. Yes, we’re still moving forward.”
