To all of you who made a birthday contribution.
Wind Watch still needs help, though. If you did not already, please give now. Every dollar (and euro, yuan, pound, krone, zloty, ruble, rupee, shekel, etc.) helps to keep us on line and independent.
A wind turbine project underway in one Steuben County town could come under threat, pending a meeting Thursday night with some neighbors.
A public hearing is aimed at eight property owners who so far have refused to grant permission to a wind farm company to bury electrical transmission cables on their properties. The company, First Wind, is building thirty six turbines in Prattsburgh. A spokesman for First Wind told the Corning Leader that if the eight property owners don’t cooperate, it may create serious problems for the project.
You can speak your mind on the subject at the hearing Thursday night at seven o’clock at the Prattsburgh Fire Hall.
