The following is the actual text of Selectmen’s motion passed unanimously on Wednesday which preempted Article 9.
“I move that the Board of Selectmen direct the Town Manager to discontinue the operations of Falmouth’s Wind I immediately. The Board of Selectmen will authorize Wind II to be commissioned and operated to its full capacity for the purpose of studying the noise and health effects of Wind II on its neighboring community. During Wind II’s first month of operation, complaints will be received, logged and evaluated. At the beginning of the second month, the Town shall then immediately implement the same 10 MPS curtailment as has been in effect for Wind I. Complaints will continue to be received, logged and evaluated. At the end of this two-month study period, the Board of Selectmen will continue curtailment or discontinue operations of Wind II. Wind I will remain out of service, except for periods required for further study or ordinary maintenance until the April 2012 Annual Town Meeting.”
