These wonderful industrial turbines 

Credit:  Kokomo Tribune | August 1, 2013 | kokomotribune.com ~~

The serenity of the countryside is one of the main reasons why we moved here. The other reason was the Tipton County taxes.

At the first couple of meetings I went to this year, I asked: What is this rush to go forward when we have a perfect example of an industrial wind farm right here? Study it. See how the wind company follows up on its promises.

So far the county has done the road repairs! Some people still don’t have phone or TV reception! The mixture of whatever dust is on the roads is bothering the residents’ health, and no dust control has been done! More than 100 complaints have been filed, and now the commissioners are saying they need $25,000 for an employee to help with the complaints.

No one even knew who receives the complaints from the Windfall residents and how to follow through with them. They already hired someone to help with their money problems and to get the books straightened out. What happened there? Have you read the Kokomo Tribune lately?

The commissioners decided the neighbors did not have to be notified of a hearing concerning any kind of request of a neighbor and what they wanted to do with their land when it required a zoning change. Most people didn’t know about this until this year, and we are fighting for our homes

A Realtor friend asked if we would consider selling, but when she found out the “possibility” of industrial wind turbines might go up in our area, her company isn’t showing anyone in those possible areas. Thank you, commissioners.

I ask besides waiting to see how the Wildcat (Industrial) Wind Farm does, shouldn’t its new taxes come in this year? Surely it is being taxed as an industrial farm. This should be a boost to taxes. Will the Assessor’s Office need extra money for help figuring up next year’s taxes and so on if the industrial wind turbines pass? Surely all these things were considered before a judgment was made.
