Crawford County Supervisors approve purchases, discuss potential new wind farm
The Crawford County Board of Supervisors approved a trio of items for secondary roads on Tuesday.
They approved buying $412,500 worth of rock from nearby Hallett Materials along with hydraulic and dump body items for a snowplow from Monroe Truck Equipment in Wisconsin. They will also consult with Calhoun-Burns and Associates to design a bridge replacement on E16 over the Soldier River. The supervisors discussed a new wind project with Liberty Power. Chairman Kyle Schutlz says it’s very early in the process but the potential farm would go in the southwest corner of Crawford County.
“They are working with the newest and latest wind turbines. These are like triple the size but they need like a third of the number of wind towers. Just the technology that’s coming through. More kilowatts out of one tower. They were most interested in what ordinances we have in place and things like that,” said Kyle Schultz.
The board also accepted the latest designs from FEH Design for the first floor restroom renovations at the courthouse after a brief discussion.
