Fairbanks recall petitions to be circulated

By  | 

DELTA COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - Members of the Delta County Election Commission approved two recall petition submissions Tuesday for two elected officials of Fairbanks Township.

Supervisor Ron Collins and Trustee James Dalgord are the two individuals the petitions will seek to recall.

Each submission was related to Heritage Sustainable Energy. The company put in wind turbines in Garden Township on the Garden Peninsula back in 2012. Heritage has additional plans to build 36 additional turbines in Garden and Fairbanks townships. Issues regarding the wind turbines and the local governments’ involvement has divided the townships, leading to the petition recall submissions.

Petitioners now have to collect signatures to get the two approved recalls on the fall ballot.
