As you might already have heard, the planning commission passed a wind ordinance in Tipton County with an overlay district.
That basically means wind farm operators can move into Tipton County. All the wind company has to do is ask for a variance.
It was a long, hard fight, and I appreciate all the help from the CRD. The overlay starts with the wind farm in Windfall, which makes me sick because the elected officials have done enough to Windfall residents.
Election time will come up, and Mr. Heron’s seat is one that is coming up the end of this year. Come election time, you need to do the right thing and replace these officials. They would not and did not listen to the wind opponents at all.
I will give Mr. Ashley and Mr. VanBibber their kudos. They wanted to ban all wind farms, which would’ve protected the residents.
Then you have Mr. Orr, who presented a wind ordinance he thought would be good for Tipton County. He is running for an elected office also, so remember his name come election time.
I personally am sorry for this happening to Tipton County and all the trouble it has and will continue to cause. I pray for Tipton County now. The troubles, I believe, are only beginning.
