Video: Ford County Zoning Board re: Wind Turbines – 10-25-2018

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On October 29, 2018

Paxton, IL. (ECWd) –

The Ford County Zoning Board continued its Hearing on changes to the Wind Ordinance.

Video is below, special attention should be paid at the 31:33 mark in the first video, where the Chairman attempts to shut down an attorney during testimony. Each party thought they said something different.

Also, a fine upstanding member of the audience decided she needed to flip me off during the meeting because I asked the audience to quit interrupting testimony of Ted Hartke.

On November 1, 2018, at 1 p.m. the Board will continue the meeting. The Board did not say where the meeting was to held, only the date and time of it.

    ah …wasn’t this all said by others many years ago when the turbines first came in here? How come there are so many deaf people in Ford county? Looks like a cluster outbreak of hearing impairment affecting elected and appointed officials. Maybe if they had a good health department we could get to the bottom of it. Oh yeah, that went away a few years back too, with a deaf county board who went blind at the sight of crimes at the health department. H-m-m
