The matter was reported to the Times by Dennis W. Pearson, who ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat for an open seat on the Town Council in the November election. Mr. Pearson, who was alerted by multiple residents by telephone about the meeting, drove to the town office on Route 12E and observed about 15 cars in the parking lot about 4 p.m. He walked in and found all four board members, including Supervisor Urban C. Hirschey, meeting with Paul J. Curtin, an attorney representing the town in the Article X proceeding held by the state Public Service Commission on the Cape Vincent Wind Farm. There were about five or six other people in the room, according to Mr. Pearson.
