Iowa wind turbines going to court

FAYETTE COUNTY, Iowa (AP) — The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that attorneys asked Judge John Bauercamper on Wednesday to put a hold on his order to remove turbines by December 9th.

The Turbine owners appealed a decision by the Fayette County Board of Adjustment to deny a variance that would legalize their towers.

The towers were built in 2015. They drew opposition from housing developers and homeowners in Fairbank. They believed they would be detrimental to the town.

The city and housing developers filed a lawsuit claiming the county issued construction permits for the turbines without following zoning ordinances. Judge Bauercamper sided with the city in 2016. The Iowa Supreme Court upheld that ruling.
