The future of a proposed wind farm tonight hinges on whether a Planning and Zoning committee member has a stake in that future.

The courtroom was about halfway full Wednesday evening, most of them were waiting to comment on Kohler’s potential conflict of interest.
If they decide Kohler has a conflict of interest, Ridgeline will have to go back to the beginning of the process which is a public comment period with Planning and Zoning.
If they find Kohler does not have a conflict of interest then county commissioners will have a final vote on whether Ridgeline Energy can build their wind turbines in the Wolverine Canyon area.
