Pitch made to table vote on wind turbine

With just weeks to go before Town Meeting, when the main event will undoubtedly be the discussion and decision on the proposed Madaket wind turbine, several members of the Energy Study Committee have floated the idea of postponing a vote on the controversial project.

Peter Morrison and Flint Ranney, who have been vocal supporters of the wind turbine project proposed for the landfill in Madaket, both raised the possibility of tabling warrant article 13 – the funding appropriation for the project – at Town Meeting on March 31.

Recognizing the strong opposition from Madaket residents, the divisiveness caused by the proposal and the potential for it to be rejected at Town Meeting, Ranney and Morrison stated the best course of action might be to table the warrant article, refine the project and attempt to build consensus over another year.
