What happened to the 5 year expectation for the 2009 Expedition as the Police Chief had assured the board and attendees at the September 2009 board meeting ? I guess he really didn't mean it.
Would like to see the DEP/DIFW conduct their own comprehensive avian study.
I know this is beyond the scope of the EUT committee, but is wind produced electricity good for our national security, especially when other countries are beefing up their energy generation with the mightiest energy bang for the buck : nuclear.

$6000 to have one government bureaucracy evaluate an associated government bureaucracy. 6 cents says this leads to a declaration that the police headquarters at the public works department is unsafe and inadequate, while the bolts and nuts holding the building together still remain three threads from falling out.
This select board advocates " Big Government " which is displayed by it's refusal to do anything that would significantly lower property taxes, such as reduce the town workforce by direct layoffs or consolidate services with surrounding towns. Big Government always protects it's own. Big Government will also reach beyond itself to combine with firms friendly to " Big Government " to "fool" the people into thinking they have their best interests in mind, when. actually they are helping to create the pathway to an even " Bigger Government". The story here is if you have property in Dixfield, you are being taxed right out of town.
Just how does short term stimulus funds gathered from a wind turbine project ( which, by the way, is redistributed taxpayer/ratepayer money which comes from increased taxes and electric rates ) help with the long term sustainability of Bingham. A ghost town with wind turbines ???
The energy that can be derived from a dead horse out performs your beloved wind mills
First Wind is doing it right for First Wind and others with their hands out willing to receive taxpayer/ratepayer money derived from an ill-conceived boondoggle of an energy plan. So that a few can prosper, the whole must suffer and National Pride takes a back seat in favor of corruption.
Just 9 weeks ago the annual town meeting took place and just the day before a 9 am to 8 pm ballot vote took place at the local polling place. Why wasn't the vote on these articles held during either of these venues. I smell a conspiracy in Town Hall.
