Two public hearings are scheduled for the Tempico Mid-Atlantic LLC medical waste treatment plant.

The County Commissioners have to amend their solid waste management plan to include Tempico, a requirement for new waste processing facilities.

The commissioners will hold a public hearing on the amendment Tuesday at 10 a.m. in the commissioners meeting room at 100 W. Washington St.

The Board of Zoning Appeals also must approve the proposal, because medical waste treatment plants are not a primary permitted use in the zoning ordinance.

A public hearing will be held Dec. 3 at 7 p.m., also in the commissioners meeting room at 100 W. Washington St.

If the local boards approve the project, Tempico would then have to apply for and receive a medical waste permit from the Maryland Department of the Environment. A public hearing is not required under the law, but could be held if requested by the county.
