Wind turbine debate gets physical in southern Brown County

Some residents have reported shoving and stealing as the community debates possible wind turbines in southern Brown County.

A woman who opposes wind turbines was allegedly pushed twice by a man who supports them on Tuesday following a town of Morrison meeting, according to a Brown County sheriff’s report. The suspect was allegedly picking up chairs when the incident occurred. The woman said the man bumped into her husband in a similar incident last year.

Chicago-based company Invenergy wants to build a 100-turbine wind farm in the towns of Morrison, Glenmore, Wrightstown and Holland. Progress has been slowed due to updated wind turbine rules.

An anti-wind turbine yard sign was stolen Wednesday from the 5700 block of Big Apple Road in the town of Glenmore, a sheriff’s report said. The sign alleged turbines were unhealthy. Similar incidents have been reported across Brown County.

The Morrison Planning Commission is holding a public meeting to update residents on changing wind turbine rules at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the town hall, 3792 Park Road.
