City lawyer recommends wind farm settlement

The City of Thunder Bay is one step closer to solving the dispute with Horizon Wind.  Administration is proposing a deal to council that would result in changes to the wind farm project and settle the 126 million dollar lawsuit.   The change sees Horizon Wind agreeing to not build turbines number 10 and 11 near Loch Lomond, but the city has agreed to allow the company to build turbines 8 and 9 where they were originally supposed to be. Council will consider the changes at it's next meeting on Monday.  Below is a rendition of the proposed locations.
