Wind farm a no-go; 5-5 tie vote enacts commissioners’ wishes

A Fulton County Area Plan Commission tie vote Monday means county commissioners’ decision to prohibit commercial wind energy conversion systems in the unincorporated area of the county will go into effect. The plan commission was split 5-5 on whether to uphold the action taken by county commissioners, who determined with a Dec. 4 resolution that commercial wind farms are not in the best interest of the health, safety and general welfare of the public.

Speaker: wind ripped county’s social fabric

Call it Wind Turbine Trouble 101 – presented by a school teacher who said he was “blindsided” about two years ago by the arrival of the towering industrial machinery in his rural Van Wert, Ohio hometown. Jeremy Kitson shared what he said he’s learned from the experience with about 200 people at the Miami County 4-H Community Building on Sunday. The bottom line? Kitson put it this way: “The less you know, the more you’ll like wind.” UK-based Renewable Energy . . . Complete story »

Proposed wind turbines spur debate; Setbacks, firefighting, health of residents among issues stirred up

The wind is kicking up in a debate over a project that would dot northern Cass County with energy-producing towers. Opponents say local rules that would govern the proposed wind turbines are weak. They claim the turbines create health issues. They wonder how the turbines will affect aerial application on farm fields and if local firefighters are equipped to handle a blaze atop one. They criticize what they call county officials’ lack of accessibility on the issue. Renewable Energy Systems, . . . Complete story »

Concern over wind farms, access to commissioners

As a Cass County resident I have many concerns about why our elected County Commissioners are avoiding my phone calls to hear my stance on the request to hold a Cass County Commissioners meeting in the evening hours – which was requested at the Dec. 4 meeting. There are many concerned Cass County residents who can only come after work. Ralph Anderson, Jim Sailors and Jeff LaDonne have been voted into office to work for us and in our best interest. . . .

About 15 homeowners in southern Jay County have submitted complaints that UHF and VHF television signals are affected when the wind turbines are spinning and generating electricity.

Wind turbine issue should be priority

I attended a recent meeting in Linden concerning wind turbines and the current county ordinance. I came away saddened by all the conflict over this issue among neighbors and even within families over this issue. I have always been opposed to county-wide zoning, but wind turbines seem a much worse threat to the county than zoning, since zoning only represents a raid upon our wallets, while wind turbines represent a danger to the health and safety of our neighbors and . . .

Wind farms still banned in Fulton County

Monday, the Fulton County zoning board voted five to five, leading to no action on an amendment to ban wind farms. This means that the wind farms are still banned and the commission’s amendment would be in effect 45 days later. The Fulton County zoning board met Monday to discuss a major wind farm proposal. The commissioners voted down the commercial project two to zero last month. While they took no action on this, they did approve other resolutions. There . . . Complete story »

Representatives to meet about Fulton County wind farm

Fulton County may get a wind farm after all. The Board of Commissioners voted to nix the idea last month. But Monday night, the Area Plan Commission is listening to the public once more. Noise, pollution and ruining the rural countryside landscape are the main concerns with those opposing the project, while much needed revenue is driving the proponents of the plan. “The calls I get are way against it instead of for it,” said County Commissioner Rick Ranstead. “I . . .
