No voice on wind turbines  

Credit:  www.wisinfo.com 18 March 2011 ~~

Recently, I was informed local farmers are working with a wind turbine company to place multiple 400-foot turbines in the town of Centerville. At the past town board meeting, I was told prior legislation was passed that prevents town/county residents from voting on the acceptance of wind turbines in their communities.

The decision has been moved to the state level with no local government voting. Over a year ago, Uriel Wind Company contacted several area farmers to propose the installation of wind turbines, on their properties, in our township. They would be located near many homes, not just in open fields.

The community should have a right to vote on this matter. There should be a required notification process to all affected households within 2 miles of the turbines prior to any negotiations and/or grant permits. A crucial phase of this process is to encourage public input, to ask questions and voice their concerns.

Unfortunately, today our only avenue to speak out is through elected officials. I urge you to contact them immediately; this legislation is under review. Together, we have a strong voice! Protect your right to enjoy the property you own, without this disturbance.
