Falmouth Massachusetts "Good Morning America" Show Stalls Wind Turbine Meeting
Falmouth health board delays wind turbine discussion
October 22, 2013
FALMOUTH The Falmouth Board of Health postponed its discussion of sleep factors a talk stemming from the ongoing debate on the town's wind turbines for two weeks Monday after one of its members, Stephen Rafferty, was unexpectedly unable to attend the meeting.
The Board of Health has re-entered the turbine debate after the Board of Selectmen voted to run the turbines for 16 hours a day, up from their previous 12-hour operation. That leaves 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. as the only off time for the devices, which have been the subject of health-related complaints from neighbors virtually since their installation. Opponents say that's not enough time to guarantee a restful night's sleep, especially for children, which makes the turbines' operation a public health matter.
The Board of Health will next meet at 7 p.m. Nov. 4 at Falmouth Town Hall, 59 Town Hall Square.
Also the wind turbine controversy was the subject of a feature story on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday. The story, which was only 40 seconds on the air but can be seen in a longer version online, focused on Falmouth resident Sue Hobart and provided an overview of the controversy to date.
