Consider with care when waiving rights

The most recent ordinance adoption with regards to wind farms has provided the citizens of Tipton County a small increase in the protection of our health and safety. Most specifically is the increase in setbacks of turbines from residences. This area in particular is the most damaging to industrial wind companies, and it is precisely this topic within the ordinance that may bring representatives of industrial wind companies to your door.

The offer will be cash for your signature. Your signature will waive your rights to health and safety and bring an industrial wind turbine closer to you and possibly on top of your property line.

1 Timothy 9,10 says, “Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

I urge everyone to consider with great care the decision you will be making and its ramifications, should you sign.
