‘The majority said, no wind farms already!’

Wind farms are storming through this country like a plague. Why? Subsidies.

Money turns the eyes blind!

Why does the government give wind farms tax credits if they sell them off? They must not need them. Is that a loophole in the law?

Wind companies have been around a while. They know the issues people will face.

Limited liability companies are expendable. Who will be held accountable? They change names like we change socks!

Tipton leaders, how can the comprehensive plan be amended without the facts? Have you read a turbine manual? Have you asked for public input to justify why we need wind farms, or to appease the people and the Citizens for Responsible Development?

Nowhere were the words “wind farm” in the survey.

Are you trying to decide a fair market value for people’s homes to help satisfy the wind companies?

You don’t listen to the public, so why take a survey? The majority said, no wind farms already!

Pandora’s box is in Tipton County. Once this mess is opened, there’s no going back.

Industrial wind turbines filled with oil and fluids and making noise should only be in remote areas, not in Tipton County.

Has a crop caught fire from a malfunction in a turbine? Who pays for fire runs? Crop fires spread fast and do a lot of damage in a short time. Seen one!

Setbacks are not good enough! No wind farms!

Turbines may be Tipton County’s population!

For years, Tipton County leaders have controlled this county for agriculture – even changed laws to stop land sell-offs for housing. Now people must buy 5 acres of land, which would have helped this community and schools.

You’re willing to destroy the very land you fought to protect. Filling it with rebar and tons of concrete.

To turn this county around, growth takes people.

If families are to stay in Tipton County, there must be growth in things for families. This county cannot grow until its attitude is adjusted!
