AUGUST 30, 2005

REGULAR MEETING

10:00 A.M.

ALL PRESENT

 

Commissioner Patrick made a motion to approve the agenda as presented.  Commissioner Terry seconded.  All voted aye.

 

Several people were at the meeting for Public Input Session at 10:00 a.m.  Mr. Duane Thiel, who owns land in Bonneville Township, spoke about wind farms and the opportunity of having a $600,000 business in McPherson County that would employee 6 to 8 people and is friendly to the environment.  Deb Colle, Delmore Township stated that she is not in favor of wind turbines near her home.  She also asked why Pat Weibert (who was not present) was told by Dave Bohnenblust, Public Works Director, that she could not have a copy of the sign-up sheet from the last Planning & Zoning Meeting and that she would not be allowed to speak to Mr. Bahr, Planning & Zoning Administrator, on the wind farm issue.  Mr. Bohnenblust was present and responded that Ms. Weibert was told she could pick up the information she asked for but no one came to pick it up.  Mr. Bohnenblust also said he felt that, since Mr. & Mrs. Weibert have filed a complaint against Mr. Bahr, it would be best if they deal with him (Mr. Bohnenblust) in the future regarding the wind farm issue.
