There are may articles about the Tipton County wind ordinance and its shortcomings.
Is Mr. Walker’s hearing now the problem? Or is the wind turbine noise the problem? Mr. Walker’s hearing is in no way going to affect the people in the rest of Tipton County. Wind turbine noise will.
Is the government now saying older citizens with hearing deficiencies are the only ones who are affected by wind turbine noise? There is something that is problematic here, and it is the government support of wind turbines.
Tipton’s planning for a wind ordinance has been nothing more than a deceptive game. OSHA has noise standards for industry. I completed the OSHA training course and was a certified instructor for the construction industry. OSHA has fixed settings for noise levels and durations. It has fixed fines for non-compliance. In the Tipton County ordinance, it is time to eliminate fluctuating ambient noise levels and enforcement when it suits the violator.
The wind ordinance should be a fixed dB level, 24 hours per day and 365 days a year. Not a floating variance to coddle the wind industry.
Compliance should be enforced with a daily fine – not maybe we will talk about it after 90 days, and send people to the doctor to see what their problem is when they file a complaint.
Folks, it is time to get this done for the citizens of Tipton County and not at the favor of the wind company.
