Wind charged meeting at BV
MANLIUS — The debate over the financial impact of the Bureau Valley School District’s wind turbine continued at Monday’s board meeting.
Last month interim Superintendent Dennis Thompson distributed to board members a report showing a summary of energy costs and the impact of the wind turbine dating back to 2001. He said he created the report following a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from a group regarding financial information about the turbine.
Thompson said a variety of factors have resulted in the wind turbine breaking even financially, but that the potential for profit was there after the bank note for the turbine is paid off in 2015.
On Monday, Greg Gonigam, who was part of the group who filed the FOIA request, spoke to the board about his concerns with the financial impact of the turbine.
