Pedestrian Safety Initiative
Over the past month we have seen an increase in cases involving fraud with the IRS and the tax filing season approaching. Several subjects have reported that an IRS tax return has already been filed or an attempt has been made to file a return when the victim has not completed their taxes yet. While this appears to be a national issue it is also affecting our area and city as well. Unfortunately, there is not a pro-active response that can prevent being victimized other than completing your taxes as soon as possible. Most people will not even know they’ve been victimized until they file their taxes and are notified by the IRS. A few steps to follow if this were to happen to you. The IRS request that you file a police report and then either contact the IRS ID Theft Hotline at 1-800-908-4490 or visit their website at www.irs.gov and follow the link for ID Theft. The victim must then fill out a two page affidavit with their current tax return (it must be paper not e-file). They also provide contact information for the 3 credit bureaus and other resources. It is NOT uncommon for a victim of the IRS scam to be a victim of additional ID theft through credit cards, bank accounts, etc.
You can help protect public health, property and the environment by following some of these tips from SD1:
- Sweep grass clippings, leaves and other debris off the street and away from storm drains. Dispose of all waste properly in trash receptacles or recycling bins.
- Use fertilizers and pesticides sparingly on your yard and landscaping.
- Never dump, pour or wash oil, chemicals, paint, yard debris, trash or other substances down a storm drain.
- Rake leaves and other debris from your yard and place them in plastic bags or trash bins for disposal.
- During the winter months or in the event of a late snowfall, try to shovel ice and snow away from storm drains to maintain a clear opening.For more helpful tips and information about how to prepare for heavy precipitation, visit www.sd1.org/customerservice/raineventpreparation
Discover how a military barracks, bare-knuckle boxing ring, the gruesome murder of a pregnant woman, and a local pub contribute to the rich historical heritage of the City of Fort Thomas.
The Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum has worked for more than a year with Battery Row Productions to create this walking tour–a tour which is much more than just physically walking. It’s done with smart phones and QR codes or on computers. You will see ten signs throughout Tower Park and the Historic Midway with short explanations of special sites. On each of those signs are also QR codes which will link to further explanations on our website. If you do not have a smart phone, you’ll be able to look up the site and see the entire collection as well as interviews with our local historians, including Gloria Sisk, Linda Rankin, Erik Geiman, Scott Froendhoff, and Betty Daniels. Dozens of historic photos have been included.
We hope you’ll spend time learning more about our much loved City!

A Message from Rumpke, Inc.
Rumpke is asking all customers to wrap mattresses and box springs in plastic before stetting them out to the curb for pickup. Due to the overwhelming outbreak of bedbugs, this will help keep their drivers safe from infestation. Rolls of plastic can be found at most hardware stores and are fairly inexpensive. Customers are asked to contact Rumpke in advance before setting out large items. If the mattress and box spring is not wrapped in plastic or called in for a special pickup, the driver will leave a sticker on it with instructions on action to be taken before the item can be removed.
