County Board Chair Addresses Upcoming Special County Board Meeting

Next Thursday night's DeWitt County Board meeting to vote on the application for a wind farm in the northwest corner of DeWitt County will offer each side 30 minutes to make their final arguments and the board will follow with their decision.


County Board Chair David Newberg outlined his intentions to run the meeting final Thursday night indicating he has discussed the meeting structure with his fellow board members who offered no objection to the plan.



With no new testimony or evidence able to be considered at the special meeting, Newberg does not believe there is anything to be presented to the board that has not been heard or considered the last two years this process has played out.



The special meeting will be from 5 pm to 8 pm at Clinton High School. Newberg indicates there is the possibility the County Board may need more time to make their decision and if that is the case, they will have to decide a time to recess the meeting to re-adjourn.
