On the agenda: CG council will reconsider turbine proposal Wednesday

Cottage Grove City Council on Wednesday will reconsider a resident's proposal to construct a 113-foot-tall wind turbine on his rural residential property at the council's first meeting of 2010.

The council tabled John Kooyman's permit application in December after the owner of a neighboring agricultural property the city has tabbed for future housing development objected to the energy-generating structure and city staff said the turbine could violate noise ordinances.

Also on Wednesday: Council members will consider authorizing submission of a proposal to provide building inspection services to the city of Newport and will ratify appointments of representatives or council liaisons to various city commissions and committees for 2010.

The Cottage Grove City Council meets in the council chambers at Cottage Grove City Hall, 7516 80th Street South. An open forum precedes the meeting at 7:15 p.m. The regular meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.
