The DeWitt County Board has set June 2 as the date for their vote on a special use permit application for Tradewind Energy's Alta Farms II Wind Project. 


DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg tells Regional Radio News the meeting will be conducted virtually that Tuesday night. Newberg explains the special meeting will mirror the format of the vote for the Tradewind application from last year.



According to Newberg, the Board was originally scheduled for March 18. He recognizes it is inconvenient to not have everyone in a room but the times we are in are dictating the circumstances of the vote. 



Newberg believes it is time Tradewind Energy should have a resolution on its application. He says they have already had to wait two months and by the time the vote is taken in June, it will be two-and-a-half months.



The meeting is again, Tuesday, June 2 at 6 pm.


Those wishing to be placed on the agenda for public comment should call Dana Smith, DeWitt County Clerk, at 217-935-7780 to be placed on the agenda and indicate if they are speaking for or against the project. 


Those who want to give public comment via email should submit their statement to countyclerk@dewittcountyill.com or by mail to DeWitt County Clerk, P.O. Box 439, Clinton, IL 61727 no later than 4:30 p.m. on May 28, 2020.  


All emails and written statements will be forwarded to Board Members prior to the meeting.
