Tipton — CRD President Jeff Hoover said the mission of the group has been not only preventing future wind development from happening, but to educate the public on the health, safety and property value issues that go along with having wind farms in the county.
“We’ve also worked hard to try to get certain things put in the wind ordinance,” he said. “Through our education efforts, I think we’ve found that these wind towers aren’t as much of a positive as the wind companies want you to believe.”
Because the wind energy topic has become such a divisive issue, Hoover expects that Tuesday’s primary will yield a higher than normal turnout in Tipton County.
