Jefferson County Board of Legislators opposes Eastern Lake Ontario offshore wind.

Jefferson County legislators do not believe
offshore wind is good for the
eastern end of Lake Ontario.
Tonight, at the regularly scheduled Jefferson County Board of Legislators  meeting, the Jefferson County Planning and Development committee, chaired by Barry Ormsby, brought Resolution #150 to the full board.

The resolution was in opposition to New York State's participation in the federal memorandum of understanding to speed development of offshore wind projects on the Great Lakes if sited in the eastern basin of Lake Ontario.

After a short discussion the resolution pass unanimously.
