GODERICH – After being cautioned it can’t impose a moratorium on further wind turbine development, Huron County council voted June 1 to “agree to support” a moratorium in the county until further health studies are completed.
A motion to support a moratorium passed 9-6 in an unrecorded vote after a request from Anita Frayne, an Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh resident who made a presentation at council’s June 1 regular meeting.

Central Huron Coun. Brian Barnim responded with a motion that council bring forward a moratorium on wind turbines in the county until further health studies are done.
