State to pick up records in probe of Cape Vincent

CAPE VINCENT – Staff from the state attorney general’s office will be in town Friday to pick up records as part of an investigation into allegations of misconduct by some town officials in connection to wind power development.

The office ordered all documents from the Town Council and Planning Board related to wind development be turned over in an Aug. 13 letter. Town Supervisor Urban C. Hirschey said Tuesday that four boxes of materials have been collected, which comprise all of what the attorney general requested. He said interviews had not been scheduled yet with town officials about the material.

Mr. Hirschey will not call a second special meeting to vote on a moratorium on wind power development. A meeting Aug. 17 resulted in no change, because two councilmen were not present. The next council meeting is at 6 p.m. Sept. 9.
