Pension reform,union contracts,health care funding,sewers and the school demolition are big tax expenses for the residents of Portsmouth.
On October 23 at 7:30 PM a 3 hour comprehensive wind turbine report will be introduced to the Town Council and the taxpayers of Portsmouth. We won't know until after the meeting if the report will be another sales pitch on wind turbine repair and a way to spend another one million dollars to repair the wind turbine.
The wind turbine scheme is a financial fiasco ,a political football and a toy with no economic benefit to the town.
The chances of another breakdown after the repairs is just the same as it was three years ago. Repairing the turbine is like "a coin flip".No matter what the three hour long report says the turbine is a high risk venture and a big gamble asking taxpayers to approve another one million dollar bond to repair the turbine!
The town needs to focus on the needs of the taxpayers. The priority should be the pension reforms,union contracts,health care funding, sewage installations and the school demolition.
There are many people who would like to see the turbine spin again but the Town Council has to look at the big picture. Look at the short three year history of the turbine .
The repair of the turbine is not economically feasible and the council shouldn't consider the turbine a priority with what we know today.
