Wind ordinance to get a hearing Monday before planning commission


WILLMAR -- Increased interest in developing wind power as an alternative energy source has prompted the Kandiyohi County Planning Commission to develop its first ordinance to deal with where wind turbines can be located in the county.

A public hearing on the "wind energy conversion system" ordinance will be held Monday during the planning commission meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. on the second floor of the Health and Human Services Building.
