FINKSBURG — Two County Commissioners discussed growth Thursday with members of the Carroll County Chapter of the Homebuilders Association of Maryland.
Julia W. Gouge and Elmer C. Lippy Jr. spoke at a dinner meeting at Rudy's 2900 Restaurant. About 45 members attended.
Gouge said builders need to educate the public about themselves.
"The building industry has provided jobs to a tremendous amount ofpeople," she said.
Gouge also stressed the need for a closer relationship between county government and the building industry because the two face similar concerns, such as the need for adequate infrastructure and affordable housing.
