Kincardine council has decided to give it another shot, in support of some of its citizens.
At the October 4th council meeting, it was decided to send a letter to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) regarding citizens concerns about the effects of wind turbines near their homes.
The mayor says, “Our residents have gone through all the normal channels, sometimes a few times and the Ministry of Environment has answered some of them from time to time but they still have some outstanding concerns.”
Council was reacting to a letter written by Franklin and Deborah Walpole that states, “We are affected by the Enbridge project but we know that our neighbours living among the turbines of the Armow project have similar concerns.”
The letter suggests that both projects are “operating out of compliance.”
Eadie says it’s time for the municipality to “take it up a level” and demand some specific answers about the concerns of the residents.
She says obviously they would like sound audits to be done and the results to be reported.
