County legislature resolution pulled for lack of accurate facts

by Carol Thompson

The Oswego County Legislature did not have good luck with memorializing resolutions during Thursday’s meeting.

A resolution pertaining to the opposition in wind turbines in the Great Lakes had to be amended due to inaccurate information. A second resolution, to oppose a plan referred to as BV7, was tabled after the validity of the facts was challenged by Tim Carroll, who serves on the county’s environmental management council.

The International Joint Commission has announced consideration of a new plan that will replace current regulations that control the water levels of Lake Ontario.

The purpose of the new plan is to reverse environmental damage caused by the current regulation plan. The county’s resolution contends that the new plan will increase the current range of water levels that private and public riparian property owners relied on for the last 50 years.  The resolution also states that the potential environmental benefits of the BV7 plan are based upon faulty research methods.
