A crowd of concerned individuals, some sporting anti-wind farm shirts, gathered in the Wharton County Commissioners Courtroom Monday to hear discussions on whether the county would be granting any tax relief or incentive to the developers of a wind farm project targeting West Wharton County. After discussion, county leaders voted unanimously not to proceed with any efforts in support of the project.

The 5-0 decision came in front of dozens of people who packed the meeting room inside the Wharton County Annex Building in Wharton.
