DeWitt County Board Discusses Wind Farm Weather Curtailment Agreement

In perhaps the shortest gathering of this edition of the DeWitt County Board, the wind farm was again a topic of conversation but occupied much less attention than in meetings past last Thursday night. 


DeWitt County Board Chair Terry Ferguson tells Regional Radio News the Board heard concerns regarding the curtailment of the wind towers during weather events. He says the agreement between the County and Enel Green Power seems to be unclear.



Wi-Fi could be coming to the Clinton Lake Marina. Ferguson indicates the process is underway to possibly bring Wi-Fi to the neighborhood near the Marina, which would include Wi-Fi at the Marina.



Last Thursday night's Board meeting was the first in-person meeting since last July when the Board held a special meeting for the vote on the Tradewind Energy Alta Farms special use permit on the Square. Ferguson indicates it is still a limited crowd but wanted to start getting back together in person.



Among action from last Thursday's meeting:


>>The Board approved Nick Godby to the DeWitt County Housing Authority Board, Brett Willits to the Kenney Fire Protection District Board, Rodney Wilson the Wapella Fire Protection District Board, Kayla Wiggins to the Waynesville Fire Protection District Board, and Chip Atten to the Clinton Fire Protection District Board. 


>>The Board approved bids for the Sheriff's Office parking lot rehabilitation. That work is expected to start and be complete this summer.
