The Republican Committee of Robinson was notified by the ACLU Friday that Robinson will suspend enforcement of its sign ordinance, thereby admitting fault on its part, the ACLU said.

The American Civil Liberties Union had threatened to sue the township for allegedly singling out Republican campaign signs in a crackdown to remove such items from public rights of way.

A letter from the ACLU takes issue with an ordinance regulating campaign signs on all property, but specifically claims that signs for Republican township commissioner candidates seem to have been removed to the exclusion of other signs.
