PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- It appears the only opposition to a proposed wind farm along the Hughes/Hyde County border are ending their opposition.  Attorney Brett Koenecke is representing the North Bend Wind Farm project and says an agreement was worked out late Monday night with intervenors  Michael and Judy Bollweg of rural Harrold and their and their business entities.

Jim Malters is representing the Bollweg’s and agrees this clients are backing away in opposition to the project.

A two-day evidentiary hearing is scheduled for December 13th and 14th.  P-U-C Staff Attorney Amanda Reiss says any further negotiation will not likely need two days of hearings.

Koenecke believes the matter could be ready for further consideration by the Public Utilities Commission at it’s next regular meeting.
