Letter: Concern over Helga Township actions
As a long-term resident of Helga Township I am very concerned with the actions of our current governing body. In talking to many residents in this township few believe in the new ordinance that the town board is trying to ram through. The best we can tell is that they went to www.fordtownship.org and got a copy of their ordinance and want to put Helga's name on it.
I believe that we should expect more originality from our elected officers to support an ordinance that is derived from the best interest of Helga's residents. We have currently been on a commercial moratorium for well over two and a half years and the new proposed ordinance will feel like a moratorium. I just think in these tough economic times we need to do things that welcome and promote small business growth in Helga instead of making it impossible to do business without a lawyer.
