Concerns over conflict of interest
Really? The President of the PC has a signed contract with WCG and presides over the board writing an ordinance for a wind farm? This is a COMPLETE conflict of interest. The ordinance made by the PC will determine how many turbines Mr. Schilling can have on his property, thus determining how much money he will make; up to $7,500 per turbine per year for 20 years. Mr. Schilling, I ask you to remove yourself from ALL DISCUSSION on this subject.
First phase includes 166 - 400 ft tall turbines. I found information for 6 WCG projects with an average population density of 18.67 people/square mile. The population density for Whitley County is 92 people/square mile. This alone speaks volumes to me. I'm not against green energy in any way, we are just too populated for a project of this size. Please investigate decreases in property values and health issues experienced by people living around wind farms.
For more information or to sign a petition asking for a moratorium and an independent study, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next PC meeting is November 17 at 7pm. Thank you.
