Saugeen Shores joins Quiet Nights Coalition  

Credit:  By Jordan MacKinnon on April 29, 2014 | blackburnnews.com ~~

A coalition of municipalities looking to silence wind turbines at night has a new member.

Saugeen Shores council has conditionally agreed to join the coalition, which is crafting a “quiet nights” nuisance noise bylaw targeting wind turbines, seeking to restrict the operation of turbines during evening and overnight hours.

Councillor Taun Frosst says municipalities are powerless to stop wind farms from operating within their boundaries, but he’s hoping this will be a tool for local governments to provide some peace and quiet for those living near wind turbines.

Council has conditionally agreed to provide $15,000 to go towards the cost of defending the bylaw in court, which has been estimated at a total cost of about $300,000.

Saugeen Shores is the third Bruce County municipality to join the coalition, which also includes Kincardine and Huron-Kinloss.
