VERMILION COUNTY -- The county board says a new committee will take a look at wind farms. There are 110 wind turbines in the county.

The past several years, people have been coming to meetings to complain about them. People say they're too close to homes.

One board member wants voters to decide things like where turbines go and how far they need to be from homes. The committee will also look at how safe they are.
