The county ordered this report, now it’s time for the County Commission to lift the moratorium and consider a wind energy project.

If you believe Clinton County should at least consider the benefits of a wind project, PLEASE tell your County Commissioners…

Steve Woods (Dist. 1)
President Josh Uitts (Dist. 2)
Scott Shoemaker (Dist. 3)

…they need to act now and lift the moratorium.
