So it’s come to this.
The selectboard in New Haven is spending taxpayer money tilting at windmills. Well, actually, tilting at solar panels.
The board is using public money to ask the Vermont Supreme Court to overturn approval of an appropriately sited, state-approved solar energy project in the town.
The board and a minority of New Haven residents have criticized solar projects in the town for being too visible from Route 7. These projects, they worry, can disrupt valley and mountain views.
