Falmouth Massachusetts Shut Wind Turbine Legal Fees Could Surpass Costs Of Project

New Legal Fees To Hit Falmouth Town Meeting Over Wind Turbines

Falmouth has spent hundreds of thousands on wind turbine litigation. "Land use attorney Mark Bobrowski will represent the Zoning Board"

The wind turbines generate 110 decibels of noise. The neighbors describe the noise as torture from lack of sleep and unable to work on their property during the day. 
The Town of Falmouth hid a 110-decibel noise warning from the public from prior to the installations for three years where it was released under the FOIA, Freedom of Information Act. 
Falmouth Town Meeting Members have been approving up to $300,000.00 every six months for outside law firms from Boston to fight the towns own residents who spent their life savings fighting the town.

Oversight in group's motion in turbine case slows court action

October 31,2017

FALMOUTH — An effort to get Falmouth's two controversial wind turbines spinning again is off to a slow start. The environmental group Green Center is seeking a hearing in Barnstable Superior Court to reconsider a judge's recent decision to shut down the turbines because they were a nuisance to abutters. The group, hoping to lobby for some alternative to total shutdown, filed a motion to intervene, but failed to provide a copy to the town's Zoning Board. According to Falmouth Town Counsel Frank Duffy, that oversight has slowed court action by about two weeks, since the Zoning Board must be given time to provide comment. Land use attorney Mark Bobrowski will represent the Zoning Board.
While Judge Cornelius Moriarty ordered the turbines shut down June 20, the Green Center said it did not file the motion earlier because it wasn't apparent that taxpayers weren't being properly represented until after the turbine trial, the judge's ruling and the selectmen's decision not to appeal.

Note #  The "Motion To Intervene " was incorrectly served to the Falmouth Zoning Board of Appeals and was reserved on October 30, 2017. 
In addition, the Docket number on the first line of the legal document is wrong 2014-0003 should be 2014-00003. It may seem insignificant but is wrong on both the October 18 and October 30 issues of the motion. 

The Docket number remains incorrect and the attorney knows it --grounds for yet another appeal in which the taxpayers are paying for all this mess including the wind turbine health fiasco  

One way to allow an honest mistake to be misinterpreted as nefarious deceit is to “hide the ball" and continue hoping it passes unnoticed, in this case the first line of the motion has a mistake !

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
