Lansing Watch Dogs Noted Wind Separatist Movements in Lake Township
From 2012 – Huron County Michigan – The news that a small group of Lake Township landowners seeking to separate from the township to pursue wind development is starting to be noticed in Lansing. The Michigan Capitol Confidential under the Mackinac Center for Public Policy released a story on Monday that seems to blast the moves by a disgruntled group to negate the referendum vote held this past February in Lake to restrict wind development.
The full story can be read at Town Votes Down Windmill Plan, Board Moving Ahead Anyways on the CapCon site.
Twenty landowners want to exit Lake Township, by ceding to the wind development friendly Chandler township located on the southern border. The wind separatist group have hired attorney William Fahey of Okemos to utilize Michigan’s PA 425 to assist in the separation process.
This is the first significant news coverage of the Lake Township wind farm story posted outside of Huron County. The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonpartisan research and educational institute dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Michigan citizens by promoting sound solutions to state and local policy questions.
