Carroll Officials Warn Of Car Break-Ins

first_imgStock Image.FREWSBURG – Town of Carroll officials are urging residents to lock their vehicles and not to store valuables in them following a few break-ins over the weekend.“There were a few (break-ins). There weren’t a lot. It was predominantly on Howard Street in the Town of Carroll and on Falconer Street,” Town Supervisor Russell Payne said.“There were several break-ins. The consoles were ransacked,” he said.Payne expressed surprise that people need to be reminded not to keep valuables in their vehicles and to lock their vehicles at night. He said Police Chief Bill Nelson and his department are investigating the incidents.“People get complacent. We don’t have a lot of crime in the Town of Carroll,” Payne explained.“A lot of it I think is younger offenders. There’s not a lot to do and not a lot going on,” he said. “And as we see the COVID-19 going on, people are bored.”Simply bringing valuables into the home and locking vehicles would solve the problem, he said.

Deputy Governor Anya Williams announces new hours for Civil Servants

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNothing heated happening with the Deputy Governor Anya Williams at that meeting in Grand Turk held Monday with the civil service… but new hours for the sector will mean starting the work day 30 minutes later at 8:30am, ending it at 4:30pm and lesser lunchtime… now with one hour for lunch instead of 90 minutes. We understand that there were no complaints to the DG who heads up the public sector.It was on Monday morning that the PDM Official Opposition party said Civil Servants are very unhappy… telling the People’s Democratic Movement about not having basic office necessities and supplies; having to bring toilet paper in some cases from home to work, according to the party’s leader. Our source said the meeting in the capital was uneventful… there was one in Provo at the downtown gym … no word yet on if there were any complaints lodged there.

And it was difficult because of so many rules and regulations.”Ghaemmaghami should know because 50 per cent of her business is now granny flats.  The City of San Diego drastically reduced such fees in May of last year. She told KUSI the fees are much closer to $10,000 to $15,000 now.Then there’s the human aspect. The larger story is increasing inventory, but very much included is the aspect of keeping families together and peace of mind for people who also may be caregivers.To cover the loss of the fees, the county is subsidizing the program to the tune of $11M over the next five years.center_img January 10, 2019 Updated: 7:58 AM Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
