road signBoston Rd. resurfacing starts Sept. 8

Beginning September 8, the City will be paving the south side of Boston Road.  The work will be performed on an area stretching from west of W. 130th Street to near Pearl Road.  Boston is expected to remain open to traffic during the paving, with eastbound and westbound drivers sharing the one open lane.  The project is scheduled to last approximately two months.  Be prepared for slow-downs and stops in the work area.

More scams to watch out for

alertWe've recently been made aware of several scams that have been attempted on Brunswick residents.

One involves "David Washington" from "Publisher's Clearing House", who calls to inform you that you have won a $750,000 prize...but will need to send them 1% of the amount "to cover taxes". If you ask them for a phone number to verify the call, they will give you an 876- area code. 876 is a Jamaican area code, and calling the number can cause you to incur international phone charges.

Another scam call claims to be from IRS officer "Adam Smith" (or another name) and urges you or another person to phone a 917- number regarding IRS business. Again, you can end up being charged for calling that number. Sometimes scammers simulate the actual IRS phone number on your caller ID to make the call seem authentic, and some callers may even know the last four digits of your Social Security number as "proof". Hang up. The IRS does not "cold call" taxpayers.
