Barre officials should focus on bringing water and sewer services to town, not turbines

One must wonder why the Town of Barre is so fond of wind turbines. Parts of Barre do not have public sewers, water and access to cable. Electricity is also inconsistent with lines bowing down to head height. Why isn’t the town trying to make available services that people require to make their lives better?

Why does this project only benefit land owners of farming acres? Is all this effort being expended for a company that is acquiring energy and none of it is for Barre?

People live in Barre for the beauty. Wind turbines certainly ruin that.
