Landowners in the town of Prattsburgh may be forced to sell some of their property for a proposed wind farm project, if the town board votes to use eminent domain.
You have a chance to learn more about the project Monday night. The key issue is whether the board should help developer, U.P.C. Wind, by using eminent domain to make way for construction of transmission lines connecting the wind towers.
A U.P.C. representative will be making a presentation at the Prattburgh Town Hall Monday night at 7 o’clock.
