A moratorium is in the works for future wind farm projects in Grant County, but some say the delay in action should include the current project affecting Southwestern Grant County.
Newly appointed Commissioner President Mike Burton says they’re working on a moratorium with their newly re-appointed attorney Kyle Persinger.
But, members of the public told the commissioners today (Tues) that since deadlines were not met under the agreement between Grant County developer E-On Climate and Renewables, a moratorium should be in order for that project as well.
Meanwhile, the county council will meet Wednesday at 6pm to decide on whether or not to approve E-On’s requested tax abatement.
