Questions raised by Municipality of Kincardine council over Armow Wind deal

Municipality of Kincardine council is looking deeper into questions posed about the Samsung Pattern Armow Wind Project development agreement.

Councillor Jacqueline Faubert explained that the wording of the motion was largely provided by a letter to council from Karen Breitbach, whose concerns she shares.

Staff will prepare a report to answer questions including why the agreement was discussed in closed session as opposed to an open session, and why it was approved while the project is still under appeal at Divisional Court.

Faubert gave notice of motion asking staff to provide clarification on contents of agreement during the June 18 council meeting.

“I thought staff had been asked to reply to the letter,” Deputy Mayor Anne Eadie said. “Has that happened?”

CAO Murray Clarke said that there wasn’t clear direction to staff to prepare a response during the June 18 meeting but that they would return with a report now that they have the questions.

“These questions keep coming across my desk,” Councillor Faubert said, adding that she would like to see a public staff report and forum to ask questions.

Wind Turbine Working Group

Council agreed to request changes to the Multi-Municipal Wind Turbine Working Group (MMWTWG) Terms of Reference.

Clerk Donna MacDougall advised that the document could undergo a lengthy period of revisions.

Council also agreed to pay the amount of $700 as the annual MMWTWG membership fee.
