Cherry Valley adopts tough wind ordinance  

The bleachers were filled at the old high school gym and applause erupted when the Cherry Valley town board Thursday, Dec. 14, voted, 2-1, in favor of a “gold standard” wind ordinance that may stop Reunion Power from building 24 turbines on East Hill.

Supervisor Tom Garretson and Town Board member Jim Johnson voted in favor of the measure, while retiring board member Fabian Bressett III voted nay.

This was also the last meeting for Bressett, who is retiring after 33 years on the town board. The board “selected” Mark Cornwell, who works in the SUNY Cobleskill fisheries and wildlife program. He and his wife, Christine, have opposed the windmill development. Cornwell will be confirmed in the job next month.

While Bressett voted against the ordinance, he paved the way for the ordinance’s adoption by making the motion to put the question into play.
