Circle Power explains its reasoning behind FOIA request

Supervisor Gerald Heikkinen revealed that Circle Power and a Grand Rapids law firm had submitted a Freedom of Information Act request at Monday’s Adams Township Board of Trustees meeting. The Guardians of the Keweenaw Ridge released a statement the next morning saying that the tactic represented an attempt at intimidation. The company says the reason is more benign.

Executive Chris Moore flatly rejected the claim.

It’s just not. Again, it’s just what the request is, it’s an information request.

Moore says that as ordinances regulating the potential wind farm project change rapidly, Circle Power has a duty to ensure that the processes driving that are fully legitimate.

As far as we know, everything that the township has done has been above board. They’ve got counsel that’s been at every meeting.

Circle Power has withdrawn its proposal for eight turbines in Stanton Township, but has tripled the number of sites it wants in Adams from four to twelve [Correction: Story originally said Circle Power is increasing to eight. It is increasing its proposal by eight, from four to 12 turbines].
