The Holland City Council has no objections to the meteorological tower planned for Windmill Island Gardens.
The council voted to send a letter to its zoning board of appeals to that effect. The board will meet later this month to discuss whether to allow the Holland Board of Public Works to erect the tower that would measure weather conditions.
The temporary tower would collect weather and wind information for 12 to 18 months before the BPW decides if a wind turbine would be effective at the site.
