At the beginning of Mondayâ€™s meeting, Charleston Town Council President Thomas Gentz said that â€śnegotiations are continuingâ€ť regarding the townâ€™s possible purchase of the proposed Whalerock wind turbine site.
Listed as new business, the agenda item read, â€śDiscussion and potential action regarding the method of funding and authorization of the town clerk and board of canvassers to hold a special referendum for the potential land acquisition of AP 17 Lot 186 for an amount not to exceed $2.7 million.â€ť
However, because the parties are in the negotiation process, Gentz said there would be no discussion.
â€śThat motion will not be brought up tonight, so thatâ€™s where we are are. That will be on a future agenda as time goes on,â€ť said Gentz.
A continuation of the public hearing before the Charlestown Zoning Board on Whalerock's request to erect two wind turbines in the town will be held Wednesday, July 17, at 6:30 p.m. at Charlestown Elementary School.
