FALMOUTH – It’s official: the Falmouth Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to support a warrant article asking town voters to remove the town’s industrial-sized turbines, in hopes to unify a divided community. The vote happened in time for the issue to go before voters in the town’s April 9 special town election and then proceed to the town’s May general election.
Selectmen previously voted Jan. 30 to have Falmouth Town Manager Julian Susso’s office prepare the warrant article pertaining to Wind 1 and Wind 2, the turbines at the Falmouth Wastewater Treatment Facility that have divided Falmouth residents and public officials since they were first erected about two and one-half years ago.
On Feb. 4, selectmen approved final language for the warrant article. Upon a motion made by Selectwoman Mary Pat Flynn, selectmen also approved additional language to allow for the possible relocation of the turbines.
