Fairhaven Board of Health Fields More Wind Turbine Complaints
Fed-up residents in Fairhaven took their case to the Board of Health Monday, trying again to get the town’s wind turbines shut down. The Board heard comment on a proposed wind turbine by-law, before being shut down by Fire Chief Tim Francis, for exceeding the meeting room’s approved capacity. Resident Joe Rosa says he deals with about an hour of flicker from the turbines in his home every day, and is frustrated with the lack of action.
Board Chairman Peter DeTerra tells WBSM News, the town’s options are limited.
Data is still being gathered from a State sound study, which started in July, but needs certain conditions to gather results. The Planning Board will hold a public hearing on that draft wind turbine by-law in the coming weeks.
