Our view -- CG council: follow your own rules on turbine
In April, the Cottage Grove City Council made the city's wind turbine requirements more stringent to prepare for the residents and businesses that would likely begin asking to place the alternative energy sources on their properties.
This fall, a resident applied to place a wind turbine on his property that meets those requirements.
We have a simple suggestion for the council: follow the rules you just made and approve the man's application.
