Red Tape Workshop Comes To Waterville 

Members of Central Maine’s business community had the chance to tell state lawmakers how they can improve the business climate in Maine Tuesday morning.Another of Governor LePage’s red tape workshops was held at thomas college in Waterville.The goal is to make Maine more business friendly by hearing ideas directly from business owners. LePage team member Mark Willette, along with State Representative Henry Beck of Waterville, and Waterville City Councilor Rosemary Winslow made up the panel.The complaints they heard were centered around the Department of Environmental Protection and the Maine Revenue Service.Also in the crowd were some landlords who say some state laws make it too difficult for them to evict people who don’t pay their rent. “Hopefully we’ll make some progress and get some things changed and make life as a landlord a little easier which will in turn allow landlords to have better buildings. We like to keep them safe. No one wants trouble,” said landlord Chris Mcmorrow. The red tape workshops are expected to continue through February.
