Town residents want wind turbine moratorium

Some residents from the town of Forest in St. Croix County aren’t happy with a proposal to introduce wind turbines in their area.
The Tribune Press Reporter reports that local residents have asked their town board for a moratorium on wind turbine developments-a month after the board approved a developer’s agreement with Emerging Energies of Wisconsin to build 37 495-foot turbines there. More than 100 concerned citizens from Forest attended a recent town board meeting to show their support for a moratorium.
The organized group is also pressing government officials for copies of a number of documents under open records law. Included in their requests are proof of insurance for the developer, all copies of electronic correspondence between Emerging Energies of Wisconsin and town of Forest officials, board meeting minutes and more.
