Happy Fourth of July, everyone. Enjoy this Holiday weekend and all the activities. Please stay safe, keep your doors locked and garage doors down and watch out for one another. Also, especially on this busy Holiday weekend, please, please drive safely and defensively and enjoy the professional fireworks displays from a distance.
The message below is from our Community Service Police Officer Ray Merritt
I just wanted to remind everyone to be safe this weekend and use caution when around any fireworks. The police department usually receives many calls about fireworks. Although most fireworks are illegal, people still are able to buy them throughout the county. I encourage people to attend a fire work display and save their money. Downtown will be every busy and after the fireworks display there will be grid lock with the traffic leaving the area.
Also please keep locking your vehicle doors. Auto burglaries are down, but we still must lock up. Be safe and I'll see you at the next meeting. Ray
