NEW SCAM INFORMATION FROM GRAFTON COUNTY REGISTRY OF DEEDS

The Grafton County Registry of Deeds sent the following email:

Yesterday an elderly man came in to question a document that he had received in the mail. This is a new scam. I scanned the document and notified NH DOJ, Grafton County Sheriff's Dept and County Commissioners.I have blocked his name and scanned the image, feel free to post it in your offices. He was from Benton. So unfortunate.

A reminder: FBI has identified real property theft on paper as the fastest growing white collar crime.

I will be spending some time this spring getting out to the Senior Centers to promote our free and secure service Property Fraud Alert.

WINTER PARKING REMINDER

Now that winter has arrived, the Select Board and the Highway Department want to remind you all to follow the Town Parking Ordinance which states under Parking Restrictions, section D:

Snow Removal:  No vehicle shall be parked on any street maintained by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation or the Town of Groton in such a manner so as to impede snow removal. No person shall stop or cause to be stopped, or park any vehicle, so as to impede or interfere with the proper snow clearing operations of the NH DOT or Town, when snow removal operations are in effect.

As you are aware, snow removal operations are currently in effect. All vehicles found in violation of this ordinance may be removed (towed) and costs of such removal and subsequent storage of removed vehicles shall be at the expense of the owner of the vehicle.

911 REFLECTIVE ADDRESS SIGN

On April 10, 2019 The Hebron Fire Dept. hung their last Red 911 Reflective Sign. However, just because the Hebron Fire Dept. is no longer making and hanging the Red 911 Reflective Signs does not mean it is to late for you to get one.  The Hebron Fire Dept. has made an agreement with the Bridgewater Fire Dept. who makes the exact same sign.  They will make a sign for you at the same price ($15.00) the only change is you will have to install it yourself.  They are located on Route 3A on the way to Bristol just past the Bridgewater Inn.  Their telephone number is 744-6047 and their station is manned Mon.-Fri. during business hours.

You will be pleased to know of the approximate 500 properties in Groton with buildings on them 107 have Red 911 Signs (in other words 20% of the town) Congratulations to the Groton Residents who helped us and ordered the signs..  They are a significant factor in our getting to you faster in an emergency. We would encourage anyone without one to seriously think about getting one.

 

MEALS ON WHEELS

If anyone in Groton is interested in receiving Home delivered meals (Meals on Wheels) 2-3 times a week, please contact Lisa Minickiello at 603-536-1204.
