Planner offers experience with wind ordinances

My name is William Courliss, and I live in Sherwood Township, Branch County, Michigan.

I just heard on the news concerning the possibility of wind turbines coming into Sidney Township. I recently read a Daily News article where Erik Benko is objecting to the intrusion of these turbines. Further, Township Trustee Jed Welder does have a legal conflict of interest, and needs to be very careful concerning his comments. He needs to listen to and obey any legal advice given by Michigan Townships Association and its attorney.

We just adopted our own wind turbine ordinances, had the ordinances challenged by a DTE contract signer, held a public vote that overwhelmingly supported the ordinances, and, subsequently, passed approved by the Sherwood Township Board.

I was an integral part of that two-plus year process, and now am sitting on the Sherwood Township Planning Commission as we face the development of solar ordinances.

My point is this: if Benko or any other resident of Sidney Township, or the township planning commission/board would like a copy of our totally developed/challenged ordinances, please refer them to me at wcourl46@yahoo.com, and I will send them a copy via email attachment.
