The Town of Falmouth has built wind turbines that take property rights of
one group for the benefit of the majority of private property owners (aka the
taxpayers). The town has used a permitting process to leverage a minority group
of residents property rights to achieve what the town wants without cost.
The commercial megawatt turbines are a nuisance. The town never offered
that the wind victims be compensated. The town has shut down the turbines 12
hours at night so the residents can sleep.
The Falmouth wind turbines will soon have no warranty and town officials
are aware of massive maintenance costs of these older gear driven turbines. The
impending driving financial maintenance issues are again more important than the
health of a minority of residents.
Now comes the multiple mitigation options plan which includes continuing
the beatings of the wind victims 24/7. The Falmouth public more harshly judges
financial loss than the health & harm to families near the turbines.
The town is in ongoing litigation over the turbines while the victims can
suffer lack of sleep, adverse health effects and loss of property values.
Monday night September 16 there will be a public discussion and vote.
Falmouth will act in a legal capicity as a judge and jury to take residential
property rights from the original stake holders of the properties near the
turbines at no cost to the town.
