The Village Grill owner Michael Hennink doesn't think East Bay Township is treating him fairly in relation to signage around his restaurant on 3 Mile Road, just north of Hammond Road. Hennink says he's been told he cannot have a marquee along 3 Mile Road, that he needs to pay for permits for signs that were already on the building when he opened, but he repainted; that he couldn't place a sidewalk sandwich board in front, and that he can't hang banners, among other things.
