Progress Made In Young Co. Wind Farm

Young County Commissioners met Monday to iron out details about extending the current burn ban before the expiration date, and to discuss progress with the much-talked-about wind farm.

The burn ban is set to end on May 29th, but Commissioners say they will not take action on extending it until the day after the expiration mark, on the meeting of the 30th.

Work is also underway for the Trinity Hills Wind Farm project, just northeast of Olney. "Right-of-ways," or paths leading to the turbine sites, are being established, along with "lay-down yards," or turbine components to be placed for assembly preparations.
