Falmouth Town Meeting Members Nix Turbine Shutdown
Falmouth town meeting members rejected a measure that would have shut down the town’s embattled wind turbines at Thursday’s town meeting.
Town meeting members voted 101-73 against an article that would have shut down the town’s turbines, Wind One and Wind Two, according to the Cape Cod Times. The turbines will continue to operate between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Residents have long complained the turbines cause negative health effects like headaches and depression.
Town meeting members also rejected a measure that would have required the town to notify residents if the water department found possible contamination in the water supply. Right now officials are only required to notify the state until the contamination is confirmed.
