Samsung deal dead

It appears the proposal of 23 million dollars over 20 years to the township of Southgate, remains in limbo.

Details of the increased offer by the giant wind turbine company were included in the package given to Southgate councillors on Wednesday.

However, Mayor Brian Milne says there was no discussion about it and no one on council talked about changing their position.

Earlier this year, Southgate council voted to declare the municipality an unwilling host to any wind turbine project.

Originally, Samsung Pattern Energy proposed 5.1 millions to Southgate over 20 years but that was increased after they voted to be an unwilling host.

Mayor Milne says it appears the wind turbine project is dead, but you never know if council will bring it up for discussion again in the future.

According to the township’s bylaw they need a two-thirds vote to reconsider any decision of council.

The Samsung proposal has been controversial from the beginning.

The company is planning 40 to 60 wind turbines in Southgate, but without a willing host designation the plan likely won’t fly at Queens Park.
