Village trustee Rick Montalto and Sugar Grove Community Development Director Rich Young attended a recent Sandwich Village Board meeting where wind energy was a topic for discussion.

With the board’s decision to enact a six-month moratorium on wind-energy solutions, village officials are using this time to conduct research on the subject.

Montalto brought back copies of a guidebook for state and local governments published by the American Wind Energy Association so that other board members could get up-to-speed on the issue.

The board will create a committee or task force to study the pros and cons of the alternate power sources.
