Tempers erupt when Glenmore approves wind turbines

Tempers flared in a Town of Glenmore board meeting Wednesday night as officials approved a new wind turbine development.

The heated followed a vote in the Town of Glenmore last week, when the town board approved building permits for C-Energy to erect seven wind turbines. After several citizens opposing the decision erupted, the board decided to table the vote.

Wednesday, the town board made its final decision on the matter.

Sheriff’s deputies were on-hand as citizens packed the Glenmore community center waiting to hear the town board’s decision. Twenty minutes in, they got their answer.

The board voted 2-1, cementing the building permits for seven new turbines.

“Shame on you!” the crowd shouted.

Angry members in the crowd chanted “Shame!” and “Judas!” as board supervisors Don Kittell and Kriss Schmidt, who voted to approve the permits, quickly left the building without comment.

The shouting carried into the parking lot as C-Energy representatives went to their cars.

“How you can you look at yourself, you lousy, lousy people!” one person shouted.

Supervisor Ron Nowak, the only member to vote against the building permits, tried to sum up the vote.

“They did all their paperwork, got all their permits. They came to us with all their paperwork, and we’re going to give it to them,” Nowak said.

Representatives of C-Energy declined to comment.

After the meeting we called Kittell and Schmidt. Neither returned our calls.
