Robinson commissioners tonight directed the township planning commission to review political sign and general sign ordinances and to recommend changes to potential conflicts between the regulations.

The vote was 3-0, with two members absent.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania had written a letter to Robinson last month saying the township was selectively enforcing campaign sign restrictions, and contending the rules violate the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“Some issues might have to be tweaked a bit to make sure we don’t get in a situation where anybody ever questions that [political sign ordinance] again,” commissioners’ vice chairman Jesse Forquer said.
