BOS Chair Belittles Noise Complaint

September 14, 2018

Frustration was the order of the day at the open forum period of the September 4, 2018 Board of Selectman meeting in Scituate. David Dardi had another sleepless night to recount. The select board chair felt he had heard it all before.

David Dardi:

This morning when I dragged myself out of bed after a sleepless night, I told myself I would come in here and tell you once again, even though I know you’ve heard it so many times, of the problem that’s out there with that wind turbine for me and my neighbors.

The problem for the board was that the town is starting noise testing, so they felt they were taking reasonable steps. But to anyone listening to the exchange, it sounded like an attempt to muzzle complaints.

Board Chair John Danehey interrupted Dardi’s remarks:

… it’s the same song and dance you sing….  I know you want it all shut down, it doesn’t matter what direction the wind comes from and I know you like coming in here for TV land for 5 minutes to talk to us. Please bring something new to the table.

But the bottom line is, as Dardi concluded, “Anyway, you’ve heard it again, we’re still not sleeping.”

This clip appeared on the Scituate Monthly ~ Our Town, a private facebook page and prompted over 50 comments. The full coverage of the meeting is on Scituate’s cable access channel SCTV on YouTube.
