Marshall County Commissioners to Address Wind Energy Conversion System Ordinance Amendments


Marshall County Attorney Jim Clevenger told the commissioners Monday morning that they will need to address the Marshall County Plan Commission’s recommendations for amendments to the Wind Energy Conversion System ordinance.

During their last meeting, the commissioners unanimously agreed to draft a resolution to present to the plan commission that would prohibit the establishment of a commercial wind energy farm in Marshall County. Clevenger said the proposed amendments must be approved or rejected after a public hearing. The commissioners have a public hearing scheduled for May 6 at 9:00 a.m. in the commissioners room in the County Annex Building.

Although the amendments to a Wind Energy Conversion System ordinance basically disallow a wind energy farm to be built anywhere in Marshall County, the commissioners need to act on the amendments presented.
