Judge vacates wind farm permit; court decides in favor of neighbors  

A controversial zoning conditional use permit that was granted last year for a new wind farm near the town of Two Rivers was vacated April 3 by Manitowoc County Circuit Court Judge Patrick Willis.

Willis ruled in favor of five plaintiffs – George Patek, Jeffrey and Anita Roberts, and Dean and Clara Pekarek – who live near the Emerging Energies, LLC, proposed wind farm.

It was decided that the Manitowoc County Board of Adjustment had failed to act “according to law” when the permit was approved because it did not apply the most recently amended version of the Manitowoc County Wind Energy Ordinance.

The Herald Times Reporter will continue to update this story as information becomes available.
