Kincardine councillor Jacqueline Faubert wants some
questions answered regarding the agreement between the Municipality of
Kincardine and the developers of the the Armow Wind industrial wind
turbine facility in the municipality.
Regarding the development agreement bylaw, accepted by council, Faubert put forward a motion directing staff to prepare a report to answer the following questions about the agreement:
Faubert clarified that the wording actually came from a letter to council from Karen Breitbach, but Faubert shares these concerns.
"At the last council meeting, I thought we asked staff to reply to Karen (Breitbach)'s letter," said deputy mayor Anne Eadie. "Has that happened yet?"
Chief administrative officer Murray Clarke said there was no clear direction at the last meeting, and then this motion was being brought forward at that night's meeting.
"I think it would be good have her letter answered," said Eadie.
"I agree," said councillor Randy Roppel. "There are other questions in Karen (Breitbach)'s letter that should be answered. Such as, if we decide to be involved in a legal action against the wind companies, can they take their money and run?"
"These questions keep coming across my desk," said Faubert. "So, I'm asking for clarification. This is an information-sharing exercise."
Council agreed to have staff bring a report back to council, regarding the answers to these questions.
"I would also like to ask questions of that staff report," said Faubert.
"Are we going to respond to every conspiracy theory that comes along?" asked mayor Larry Kraemer who was the lone voice against the motion.
