Sawyer County researching wind power policy  

Amidst times of high costs for traditional fuels and growing pushes for alternative energy sources, Sawyer County officials are considering to create an ordinance that would specifically regulate a rather rare structure in this part of the state-wind turbines.

The Sawyer County Record reports that the county’s zoning committee is holding hearings to gather feedback from the public as to what it would like included in any such ordinance. Some concerns commonly raised involve not only how loud of turbines should be allowed, but also how the large propellers might affect the aesthetic value of the area.

At least one local government member has asked for more technical experts to weigh in on the feasibility of wind-generated power for Sawyer County.
