Legislator calls for correction of errors in county resolution 

Credit:  by Carol Thompson | The Valley News Online | valleynewsonline.com | 18 May 2012 ~~

A resolution in opposition of the memorandum of understanding between New York State and the federal government to speed development of wind towers in Lake Ontario’s eastern basin apparently contained inaccurate information that one legislator wanted corrected.

During Thursday’s meeting of the Oswego County Legislature, the accuracy of the third paragraph of the resolution was questioned by Legislator Amy Tresidder.

The paragraph states, “Whereas, it is always wise to learn from your neighbors’ mistakes – although initially embracing offshore wind turbines in Lake Ontario, after experiencing negative economic and environmental consequences, the Province of Ontario has now placed a moratorium on any further construction of offshore wind turbines pending further study.”

Tresidder asked that the paragraph be removed, stating that she had contacted the ministry in Ontario.

“There are no offshore wind turbines at the present time in North America,” she said. For that reason, she contacted the ministry to determine what the negative consequences were.
