Six More Maine Communities Recieve Business-Friendly Seal of Approval 

Six more Maine communities have received the state’s business friendly seal of approval.Lewiston-Auburn, Ellsworth, Fairfield, Kennebunk, and Topsham all recevied the distinction at a state house ceremony this afternoon.The award is presented to communities that make things easier and more attractive to business owners.”The process they go through to apply for this certification opens their eyes to whether or not they are business friendly,” said George Gervais of the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development. “It either puts a stamp of approval on where they’ve been headed anyway, or it makes them realize there are changes that they need to make.”Each town receives a road sign designating it as business friendly and a certificate.So far, eighteen Maine towns have made the grade.
