Beals moratorium puts halt to windmills

by Nancy Beal

In a special town meeting preceded by a public meeting May 25, Beals voters adopted a six-month moratorium on the erection of windmills, during which time town officials will draft a windmill ordinance to present to the town for approval. Another measure called for an outright ban on windmills on the two linked islands that house the town’s living quarters—Great Wass and Beals Island (the latter of which some in the audience were surprised to see identified on the meeting warrant as “Little Wass”).
