Manistee Co. board supports wind farms

MANISTEE – About 50 people crowded the Manistee County Board of Commissioners’ room Tuesday to hear the board approve a resolution to support the development of utility-scale wind farms in the county, said County Administrator Tom Kaminski.

The board approved the resolution, 4-3, with commissioners Richard Schmidt, Ervin Kowalski, Glenn Lottie and Carl Rutske voting yes and Jim Krolczyk, Duane Anderson and Ken Hilliard voting no.

Kaminiski said the county board does not control zoning in Manistee County, and it is instead ruled by the individual township governments.

The resolution approved by the county board states, in part, “… the County of Manistee supports the development of one or more utility-scale wind farms in the county and encourages the townships in the county to make land use decisions that encourage wind farm development while providing appropriate and reasonable protections for public health, safety and welfare.”
