Below are the actions of Brown County concerning Duke Energy's Shirley Wind LLC in Glenmore.
Three Brown County government agencies took action on this issue:
1. Brown County Board of Health - 7 Member Board
2. Brown County Human Services Committee - 7 Member Committee
3. Brown County Board of Supervisors - 26 Member Board
The action of all these groups were UNANIMOUSLY passed (almost unheard of in Brown County government). Below are the links to the official minutes and the detailed documents (in reverse chronological order).
--> January 8, 2013 Brown County Board of Health
The Board of Health unanimously passed a motion to begin the process of creating a County Low Frequency Noise Ordinance. This ordinance will address all sources of LFN, not just industrial wind turbines. This was decided after considering other LFN sources and issues reported in Brown County.

Calls the situation in Glenmore a Public Health Issue and requests that the State fund low frequency noise testing in the footprint of Duke's Shirley Wind project. They include the reported adverse health impacts of more than 50 residents living around the 8 Shirley Wind turbines.
--> February 15, 2012 Brown County Board of Supervisors
See No. 9c for details and record of unanimously approval
With only minor revisions, the 26 member Brown County Board of Supervisors adopted similar actions of the other Brown County Boards (below).
--> January 25, 2012 Brown County Human Services Committee
See #2 and #13 for details and record of unanimously approval
The Brown County Human Services Committee took identical action as the Brown County Board of Health (on 1-10-12).
--> January 10, 2012 Brown County Board of Health
See #5, #6, and #4 (in that order) for details and record of unanimously approval
The Brown County Board of Health took two pivotal actions - they requested "Emergency State Relocation Aid" for those suffering in Glenmore and they endorsed the "Wisconsin Citizens Safe Wind Siting Guidelines" (the SCIENCE-based set of wind siting guidelines that citizen groups across the state drafted and submitted to the PSC numerous times for adoption). These guidelines were completely ignored by the PSC in the Wind Siting Docket (1-AC-231) and the Highland Wind Docket (2535-CE-100). Links below are to the most recent versions in both dockets.
You will note that both of these documents include an extensive list of peer-reviewed references upon which both were based.
