Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh reeve Ben Van Diepenbeek says a recent meeting with Environment Ministry officials produced some interesting discussion but not much else.
The municipality had asked the Ministry several months ago for some clarification and verification of two reports that claimed low-level noise from wind turbines was worse during the night than during the daytime.
Van Diepenbeek says they want the Ministry to confirm that claim so they can find a suitable distance for setbacks in creating a bylaw for wind turbines.
He says the Ministry has now promised to review the reports and get back to them this fall.
