The Wilmington Police Department is receiving higher than normal complaints about telephone scams.  Please be aware that if you receive a call from a person that’s identifies themselves as a family member, usually a grandchild, asking for money for an emergency it is most likely a scam. Please call your family member directly to verify it was a family member. The other ones involve the estates from long lost relatives, IRS, property taxes, banks updating credit card information promising lower rates, etc.  Some are even from  our local exchange 464 numbers.  Never give out identifying information such as your birth date, social security numbers or verify the account number to these persons.  The authentic organizations will never ask for that information over the phone.  For more information on telephone scams check the Federal Trade Commission’s website, https://www.ftc.gov/, under scams.

The following is an update for the West Main Street project.  The project is very close to completion!

 

The contractor installed the crosswalk near the pedestrian bridge and a crosswalk warning sign yesterday (Thursday, 6/29).  The only remaining item to be installed is the electrical service and control panel for the new lights.  However, due to complications with a property owner, the contractor has not yet installed the lighting control panel and electrical service.  Therefore, the lights will not be in operation by the project completion deadline of today, June 30.  The Town is working on a solution to complete this work within the next couple weeks.

 

The contractor will be responsible for grass restoration until full growth is established.  This will be ongoing and the contractor will be on-site from time to time to water and repair any erosion from rain events.
