Anti-wind residents want Shumlin helpSeptember 07,2013THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWARK ó Residents in the Vermont town of Newark are asking Gov. Peter Shumlin to appeal a state ruling that would allow a developer to erect test towers to monitor wind speeds in the area.
Seneca Mountain wants to erect the test towers, with the goal of building about 35 turbines in Newark, Brighton and Ferdinand.
The Vermont Public Service Board approved the nearly 200-foot test towers, one in Newark, two in Brighton and one in Ferdinand.
Two citizen groups, Newark Neighbors United and Brighton Ridge Protectors, sent a letter this week to Shumlinís office asking him to help fight the boardís ruling.
The governorís office has not commented yet on the letter.MORE IN This Just InThink of Saturdayís event as a classier and much more fun version of Black Friday. Full StoryComments Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt. Full Story
