County committee says ‘no’ to wind farm tax breaks

A Jefferson County legislative committee is saying “no” to tax deals for developers of wind- and solar-power projects.

All but one county lawmaker on the finance and rules committee voted Tuesday night for a resolution that would deny tax deals to alternative energy projects.

It would only affect county taxes. Local towns, villages and school districts could still strike their own deals with developers.

“It’s important to know where we stand, we would encourage everybody thats participating in this process to put their positions out there as well,” Legislature chair Scott Gray said. “It certainly helps when you go into these meetings with these developers that they know where you’re coming from.”

The full county Legislature will consider the resolution at its July 5 meeting.
