Wind turbines maybe easier to build in Johnson County

Posted:
JOHNSON COUNTY (KWWL) -

Johnson County homeowners and businesses may soon find it easier to build their own wind turbines to generate electricity.

Officials are looking at reworking the county's rules to make it easier for homeowners and businesses to build wind turbines on their property.

The change would remove a requirement for anyone with a turbine 80 feet tall or shorter to obtain a conditional use permit.

Instead they will need a building permit.

A public hearing on the proposed change is scheduled for December 8th.
