New dissent will cause Casna to reconsider motion to push BOS into turbine mitigation  

Credit:  By Bradford Randall | March 1st, 2013 | kingstonjournal.com ~~

Joe Casna wasn’t expecting town counsel or the town administrator to agree with his Board of Health (BOH) motion to recommend the selectmen authorize town counsel to enter into what Casna (pictured) called “meaningful negotiations” with the co-managers of the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbine, but he definitely wasn’t expecting Sean Reilly of Leland Road to withdraw his once enthusiastic support.

“The word negotiation as I understand it now means closed doors and private meetings,” Reilly told the Board of Selectmen (BOS) during open forum on Tuesday night.

Reilly admitted that he initially supported Casna’s motion last week but said that upon further reflection he now “rejects it as completely inappropriate.”

“Our health and our well being should never be negotiable,” Reilly told the selectmen.

The Reilly Family of Leland Road have been vocal critics of the KWI Turbine for nearly a year and have claimed ill-health effects from strobing of light caused by shadow flicker and residual noise from the turbine’s operation.

Today, Casna told KingstonJournal.com that he will reconsider his prior motion suggest that the selectmen authorize town counsel to negotiate mitigation with the co-managers of the KWI Turbine. “At the next meeting I’ll immediately make a motion to reconsider,” Casna said.

Casna also told the Journal that that he still believes his proposal was “a good idea.”

“I tried to start an initiative to get a prospective from a different view point,” Casna said. “I didn’t expect town counsel or the town administrator to support [my proposal].”

Casna also pledged that he would not author a letter to the BOS on behalf of the health board endorsing his motion, as was previously planned.

BOH-members Dan Sapir and Jack Breen opposed Casna’s motion last Thursday. Along with Casna, Bill Watson and William Kavol supported the motion.
