Residents poured into the first floor of the Montgomery County Courthouse Monday morning to let the Montgomery County Commissioners know how they felt about windfarms. More than 50 people were present for the meeting, including many advocating for the group No Wind Farm Montgomery County. They pushed the commissioners to take a fresh look at outdated windfarm ordinances and regulations.
“Research, research, research!” Montgomery County Councilman, Mark Davidson, advised the commissioners. Davidson spoke about the negative effects of the turbines such as the flashing shadows from the wind turbine blades and red flashing lights. He also spoke to economical side of the wind farms saying “I think it also has potential to destroy future economic development. As I balance it out, I see more harm than good. The residual effect of this. . . I think is detrimental to the county. The setback that is in the ordinance right now needs to be at least doubled.”
Tisha Southwood took the podium to be heard and addressed the many health issues that she says can be attributed to the wind farms. 
“There is a strong health link here that needs to be looked into,” Southwood said. 
Rich Watkins lives in North East Montgomery County. 
“I am all for private property use, but if they’re going to use a signal that crosses into my property making me and my neighbors sick, that’s trespassing” Watkins said. 
Question of the Week:

Summer is the hot and heavy season for construction. We are no exception here as road work is evident in lots of places. What's your opinion?
