A majority of Vermilion County board members failed to show up Thursday for a meeting of an ad hoc committee considering changes to the county's wind-farm ordinance.
The lack of participation is frustrating the public members of the committee.
Fourteen board members voted this summer to form an ad hoc committee to consider changes, due to concerns of the current ordinance. Those 14 were then assigned to the panel along with members of the public.
The committee has met five times since then but has failed to have a quorum for three of its meetings, including Thursday, when its work was supposed to be finalized.
Five of the 14 board members were there Thursday along with several members of the public. Despite numbers, the group moved forward with presenting specific proposals for ordinance changes.
The committee plans a final meeting in January before taking recommendations back to the county board.
