Tips/advice:
School is back in session so watch out for excited children running through the streets to get on a bus or get into school. Also remember that the speed limits in school zones are 15 miles per hour. The police department also closely monitors the school zones to make sure that drivers do not pass or overtake a school bus while the red lights are on and the stop sign is activated. Should you decide not to stop for a school bus while it is loading or unloading children you could be the recipient of a costly citation ($396.50) that comes with a mandatory license suspension (60 days) and 5 points if you are found guilty.

The cooler weather will soon be approaching (maybe after this week’s heat wave) and that means that more windows will be opened to let the fresh cooler air circulate and cool your house. Please remember to secure your windows when you are not home so that you do not fall victim to any thieves that are in the area looking for a quick and easy place to enter. As always, call 911 immediately if you see someone, something or a vehicle that appears suspicious to you. The police department is more than happy to respond and check out the situation, area or person. We appreciate the calls, information and assistance that the residents provide us with helping to keep this neighborhood safe. When we work together we can achieve great outcomes. Thank you.
