Horizon Wind Energy is in the process of installing more meteorological test towers, Arkwright Town Board members learned Monday.
Horizon representative Tom Stebbins said one was being constructed on Ruttenbur Road this week and a second is planned for Center Road by the end of June.
Councilwoman Linda Fairbanks asked what procedures need to be followed to notify Horizon when the wind escrow account established with Arkwright needs to be replenished.
She said she did not like that a temporary stop order was issued last month because of this.
She was assured this has been taken care of by Horizon’s attorney and direct contact with Stebbins.
Supervisor Fred Norton said the escrow account needed replenishing again.
Councilman Jeff Dietrich asked Stebbins if an updated list of participating Arkwright land owners was available. The response was no.
In other business, Park Road residents Ed and Peg Brisky said an excessive amount of brine has been used on the road and asked that it not be applied in front of their home.
Highway superintendent Steve Mead announced Arkwright’s participation in the county’s tire amnesty program will run from June through July.
He said he will be accepting up to a total of 247 tires, 19″ or smaller, off rims, at the town’s highway barns.
Those wishing to take advantage of this free disposal of used tires may call Mead at 679-9515 for times when the tires will be accepted.
