Youth center denied exemption request


The Carroll commissioners voted yesterday to deny a juvenile facility in Marriottsville an exemption for tipping fees at county landfills.

The North American Family Institute, a nonprofit organization that operates at the Thomas O'Farrell Youth Center, asked for the exemption. An Aug. 2 letter from Director John R. Gray did not say how much trash the center dumps.

The county charges a $40-per-ton tipping fee at its landfills.

Carroll Comptroller Eugene C. Curfman said the county does not give exemptions to other agencies.
