UPDATE: Boston Rd. resurfacing to begin soon

Because of weather-related delays on other projects, the resurfacing of Boston Road has been postponed until after September 15.

The paving will be performed on the south side of Boston Road, stretching from west of W. 130th Street to near Pearl Road.  Two-way traffic will be maintained during the paving, with flaggers on the scene during working hours.  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.
