Airport Board says thanks, but no thanks

August 18, 2011

The Airport Authority said no. They cannot in good conscious prepare a letter of no objection to five wind-tower sites selected by Mid-West Energy within the airport’s three mile traffic area. The vote at last Thursday’s meeting was three to two. The Airport Authority doesn’t have the last say. It is their job to pass on a recommendation, or in this case their objection, to Broken Bow’s Board of Adjustment.
Midwest Energy representative Tom Swierczewski says he believes their concern is unwarranted.
