To the editor:

The Current recently published a letter authorized by the Egg Harbor Township Planning Board that was critical of an editorial appearing in the Press of Atlantic City on Sept. 3. This editorial questioned how the board could have approved the large digital billboard on the Margate Causeway.

That letter has some false and misleading statements. It indicates that a recent court finding calls into question the legality of accessory business signs throughout Egg Harbor Township. It also states that there are 18 billboards in the Marine Commercial Zone when in truth there is not a single one and never has been. Peter Miller, township administrator, has publically made these same false claims.
