BLACKFOOT – A group in Bingham County is making it clear, they don’t want to see any more windmills in the area. A couple dozen concerned citizens gathered outside the Bingham County courthouse Friday to protest wind farm expansions. They hope Bingham County commissioners will hear them out and put a moratorium on construction of any wind farm projects.

“Voices up and down the valley are crying out saying, look, slow down. What’s the rush? Let’s take a step back. Let’s thoroughly study the issue and determine where we want to go in the future with these wind turbines. What are the health impacts. What are the economic impacts? No one knows for sure,” said Bruce Jolley, a concerned citizen.

The group says if you don’t want to see any more wind farms built, you should raise your voice and talk to your county commissioners.
