The Lyme town board wants a six month moratorium on windmill construction in the town.
Meeting Wednesday night, board members said they need time to draft zoning rules.
A public hearing on the windmill issue will be held at the end of the month.
Three windmill companies have expressed interest in setting up windfarms in Lyme.
“Things are moving a little too fast,” said town council member Norman Schreib.
“The town board decided we want to slow things down to give time to evaluate what’s going on.”
However, board members emphasized they are not anti-windmill.
