Crisfield Possibly Selling Carvel Hall, Creating Renewable Energy

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md.- The Crisfield City Council held its first reading Wednesday night about an ordinance that could potentially bring renewable energy to the city.

There are talks on selling Carvel Hall, a vacant building in the city. The businesses that the city would be selling to would be creating renewable energy.

From biomass to solar energy, one of the processes that's under consideration is converting chicken manure to energy. Some people who live across the street from Carvel Hall are concerned.

"The smell... I don't like the smell. We live so close to the place, we'd be smelling it more than anybody else would," Linda Mays said.

But city officials explain there won't be any issues with the smell because there will be no open burning. Everything will be self-contained, with no outside storage of manure.

"The public's input into the situation is always welcome. It's their community, too. I have to look at the best possible job opportunities that we can get in the friendly environment of the city of Crisfield," said Crisfield Mayor Kim Lawson.

The city said that selling the hall to the businesses will be an economic boost, employing up to 70 people.
