Clay County Moves Forward on Wind Farm Discussion

A wind farm is the hot topic of discussion in Clay County.

Tuesday, Commissioners granted permission to County Attorney Jay Contrell to discuss terms of the tax abatement with Horn Wind.

The Windthorst-based company is building a wind farm in the southwest portion of Clay County.

An abatement is an economic incentive in the form of a granted reduction of taxes.

These abatements are often to prevent companies from looking elsewhere to build.
