BRIGHTON — At a meeting Monday of the board of governors for the Unified Towns and Gores of Essex County (UTG), very few residents and landowners of the UTG were actually in attendance, though the gymnasium at the town hall in Brighton was crowded. What easily could have turned into a mob scene given the hot topic of wind power on the meeting agenda, behavior of the attendees may have been tempered by the visible presence of four armed officers including Essex County Sheriff Trevor Colby, two of his deputies and Brighton PD Chief Jeff Noyes.

Kevin McGrath owns a home within a half of a mile of Green Mountain Power’s (GMP) Kingdom Community Wind development on Lowell Mountain. McGrath’s property is one of the closest to the turbines. He had just finished building his home and making his property just as he had always wanted when the turbine project began. He works out of the area and when he returns he is often disturbed by the noise, he said.
