What a sad saga for this town.

Now requiring a request for qualifications, RFQ instead of the earlier request for proposal, RFP, attempted by our town hall officials. The timeline seems never-ending for this project that began somewhere around 2004. I expect that our officials plan to relocate these turbines to an out-of-town leased site that will end up costing we taxpayers even more than has already been wasted to date. Gearbox failures are a rather common experience with this type of machine.

Meanwhile, the bylaw requiring their removal within 150 days after one year of non-operation appears meaningless. There the monstrosities stand, uselessly motionless, red lights flashing, their blades now black, monuments to another failed project.

Barry Funfar continues to rage against the wind turbines, although they haven't spun for more than a year.   For a few individuals, opposing the turbines was (and still is) an obsession, not a fact-based process.   In May 2013, all nine precincts voted against spending $10 MILLION to scrap them, by a 2-1 margin.   Meanwhile, the front page of today's Enterprise states Town Hall will be vulnerable to flooding..
