Congratulations for informative Times

December 18, 2013

Kudos to Independence Township for last week's inaugural Independence Township Times.

At a time when government is measured by how well they spin public relations, it's refreshing to see a local unit of government leveling with people.

The four-page insert in last week's Clarkston News had the good (property values have increased!) as well as the bad (sewer rates are going up), and why. It also includes an informative status update from Supervisor Pat Kittle, continuing his series of columns throughout the year in the News, as well as needed info on winter tax bills from Treasurer Paul Brown.

And it was mailed to every residence in the Clarkston area during our Super CNews publication. It's good to see local government put the word out in black and white, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
