Appeal of wind project permit whittled to 1 group 26 Jan 12

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – An appeal of a Goodhue County wind project permit has been whittled from four to one opposition group with the latest challenger dismissed over a mailing mistake.

Lawyers for AWA Goodhue moved to dismiss an appeal by Goodhue Wind Truth because its paperwork was sent to the appellate court by first-class mail instead of certified mail. A judge agreed to dismiss the citizen group’s appeal.

The Post-Bulletin says that leaves the Coalition for Sensible Siting as the only group remaining in the appeal of the project permit issued by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
