County could apply for incinerator permit

The county government could try for an incinerator permit, despite the Baltimore metropolitan area's failure to meet ozone standards, two state officials said Tuesday.

Maryland Department of the Environment air quality specialists outlined the permit process for the committee that is studying whether to recommend that Carroll build a trash-burning incinerator.

An incinerator built in Carroll County would have to use the best available pollution control technology, Department of the Environment representative William Paul said.

Mr. Paul said that for Carroll County, which is in an area that doesn't meet federal air quality standards for ozone, county officials would be prohibited from using economics or cost-effectiveness to argue against using the best technology.

Nominations sought for teacher awards

March 14 is the deadline for submitting nominations for the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce's Outstanding Teacher Awards, which will be presented at a banquet May 2 at Wilhelm Ltd. Catering.

Anyone in the community may nominate a teacher for the award. Application forms are available at all county public schools and libraries as well as the chamber office in Westminster.
