"I think this is exactly what we need," Councilor Dennis Troyer said about capturing the renewable energy source to reduce the city's power costs. Troyer is driving the city's research into wind energy. He said he was just following the lead of former Councilor Roscoe Turner, who raised the issue two years ago. "I've been interested in this ever since I came into office," Troyer said. "But we got so far with it, and it just hung out there in limbo with nothing happening."
