Turbines come, taxes still go up

This is an open letter to the Town Board of Arkwright and to the Forestville school district.

The giant turbine and windmills, as I was told, were going to help our area in economic ways.

My question is this has anyone heard just how much the school district is receiving from the windmill farm per year. I have not heard or seen any statements on this anywhere. Our school taxes went up 6.3% what gives?

If all this money is being generated why are taxes going up instead of down? We should be having some of the lowest taxes anywhere in the state but yet they increase.

Arkwright town officials and Forestville school officials please clear this matter up by posting in the OBSERVER just what monetary benefits the town of Arkwright and Forestville school district are receiving. And how much the town receives in revenue each year from the wind farm. It should be public knowledge and not that hard to produce.

Otherwise it seems we have been had as to promises made by Officials in charge of the many benefits we would get.
