Johnston mayor: Wind turbines are none of Cranston’s business
When asked about the concerns Tuesday, Johnston Mayor Joseph Polisena said the town and company that owns the turbines went through the proper channels to have them constructed. Cranston residents said they were never notified of planning and zoning board hearings held in 2017.
“They don’t have to be notified,” Polisena argued. “Quite frankly, not to be rude, it’s none of their business, they don’t live in the town of Johnston"............................A spokesman for the Rhode Island Dept. of Health said there were no identified health concerns associated with wind turbines.
“I’ve been a registered nurse for 32 years, I’ve never heard that wind turbines cause health problems,” he said. “If you don’t like them then try another argument.”
While some residents want to the turbines to be removed, Polisena said if they decide to take legal action, he’s not concerned.
