Signs of Comity

The Aberdeen Township Council is taking some small but welcome steps towards establishing a more collaborative relationship with local businesses, according to a township press release. For a start, a joint committee of government officials and business owners will look at township ordinances regarding commercial signage to see how the regulations might be revised to be more business-friendly. Another committee will seek ways for government and business to work together to promote Aberdeen Day and other events. There is much to do in this regard, so I hope the council is serious about this effort.

BTW: If you are wondering why the press release emphasized that Councilman Drapkin's business is outside of the town limits, you might want to ask a particular local tire salesman about why that sort of caveat was necessary. Local businessmen should be able to serve on the Council, not just work on its committees.
