Washington County Supervisors have a work session scheduled next week to discuss throwing their support behind a proposed wind energy project. Chairman Jim Miksch has expressed some concern over the proposal because wind farms are eligible for, and often ask for tax breaks. Tim Wichman is with Tradewind Energy, the company looking at building the wind farm.
