Greenwich Township Trustee Walter Leber said he's not against the establishment of a Greenwich Windpark, covering about 4,650 acres of leased private land. He said if it's done correctly he thinks it would be a good project.

At the same time, Leber said he has a responsibility to the township residents -- specifically, to ensure the roads are kept in good condition so residents can come and go without hassle.

Leber, who also said he has some monetary concerns about the project, was one of two people out of 60 to 80 people who testified at a public hearing at South Central High School. The hearing's purpose was to allow citizens to provide testimony that will be added to the official case record.

Greenwich Windpark LLC has applied to construct a windpark that would cover about 4,650 acres of privately leased land.
