All Tipton residents deserve security 

Credit:  Kokomo Tribune | August 29, 2013 | kokomotribune.com ~~

There has been so much written on the property value issue and the Tipton County Board of Zoning Appeals’ requirement to juwi to provide non-participating homeowners with a property value guarantee, I think some important things have gotten lost in the argument.

In September of last year, before my husband and I learned of the impending installation of industrial wind turbines, my husband was diagnosed with cancer. Believe me, when you hear that word your entire world is turned upside down. Sadly, we had to have the conversation no couple ever wants to have. That of what will I do if he doesn’t survive.

Having worked hard and staying within our means for 30 years, we knew we were close to paying off the house, so I would be safe and sound in my own home without the fear of where I’ll go. I knew that gave me the security I would need until I would have to make the decision of how long to stay in my home.

At the time, we were confident that if and when I would decide to move, the value of our home would at least allow me to move on to another house or condo of comparable quality and pay it off completely. More security that we’ve worked all our lives for.

Now, I’m not that confident at all.

The sad reality coming out of Windfall is that some people are not only losing value in their homes, they are not able to sell them at all. This essentially makes their homes worthless.

I think the future of homeowners in Tipton County and the changes that take place in all our lives is being overlooked. There are many things that may cause a homeowner to decide to move. Illness, death, divorce or a change in employment.

I urge all of our county leaders to be more interested in the future security of all Tipton County residents, not just the few who stand to benefit financially.
