Delaware County Supervisors Meeting Recap

Delaware County officials were scheduled to hear an update on the wind turbines near Earlville on Monday, but the presentation has been put on hold.

Steve Thompson of Optimum Renewables was on the agenda at Monday’s Delaware County Supervisors meeting, but due to illness, the presentation was tabled and will likely be on next week’s agenda. The wind turbine project has changed hands, so county officials are eager to hear Thompson’s presentation.
