Yorkshire Bans Wind Turbines; Allegany Town Board May Change Direction

Town board rethinking wind-turbine farms in light of ban in Yorkshire

ALLEGANY - Supervisor Patrick Eaton said a recent ban on wind turbine farms by the Yorkshire Town Board has caused Allegany Town Board members to rethink its position regarding proposed wind turbines in the Chipmunk area.

Another issue expected to have an impact on the proposed 32-turbine Everpower wind farm in the Chipmunk area in the southwest portion of the town of Allegany is the town’s portion of PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) payments negotiated by the Cattaraugus County Industrial Development Agency (IDA).

The proposal is not dead, yet, Mr. Eaton emphasized.

The town councilmen will meet in special session Monday at 6 p.m. at the Town Hall with Daniel Spitzer, the attorney they hired to advise the town on wind-power issues.

I think it's to bad people listen to a couple of people that does not know anything about wind turbines getting people to oppose them, I have been by these turbines and I had to listen to hear them. These same type people caused trouble in Potter Co. I'm not sure maybe mad because they are not getting nothing.

Well some of us will be fencing off the land we own and pay taxes on, the heck with being the good neighbor, no more free recreation! If they want it for free they can go to the state parks and game lands...or better yet, make an investment in their own land!!!
