DeWitt County Board Shifts Venue for July 14 Wind Farm Vote

The DeWitt County Board's July 14 special meeting to vote on the special use permit application for Tradewind Energy Alta Farms II wind farm project will shift from the DeWitt County Building to Mr. Lincoln Square in Clinton.


DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg proposed Thursday night at the Board's regular meeting and the board approved it. The chairman says this has been cleared with Clinton Mayor Roger Cyrulik, Police Chief Ben Lowers, and the DeWitt/Piatt Bi-County Health Department.



According to Newberg, the company that the City of Clinton works with for sound on the square for their events will be who the County hires. The meeting will also be broadcast live on The Big 1520 AM/92.3 FM/106.5 FM WHOW and the many WHOW mobile platforms.



A rain date was discussed but Newberg says he is thinking positively and indicates they can keep an eye to the weather and adjust accordingly if necessary.
