From the Police Dept:
LOCK YOUR VEHICLES!
We have had reported to us recently that some cars have been entered in an apparent attempt to steal some of the contents. In all cases, the vehicles have been left unlocked, parked in residential areas and this has been occurring during the overnight hours. Remember that you should be locking your vehicles and should not be leaving valuable items in them.
DON’T BE IN A HURRY TO PASS ON THE RIGHT….
If you see another vehicle stopped in front of you at an intersection and it doesn’t appear to be turning, be cautious! They may be waiting for a pedestrian to cross the roadway.
PARK AVENUE SPEED LIMIT CHANGED
The speed limit on a section of Park Avenue has been changed to keep the speeds consistent for both lanes. Specifically, the speed limit for northbound traffic at Faith Drive, along the Park Avenue corridor, was changed from 35 mph to 25 mph. Please take note and be aware!
PAY ATTENTION TO THE ORANGE FLAGS!
In an effort to keep a busy intersection safe for motorists and pedestrians, the City has placed several orange flags on each side of the Park Avenue & Farnham Street intersection (at Park Avenue at the southernmost crossing). These flags are to be used by walkers wanting to cross the road to be more visible to traffic in that area. Park Avenue and Farnham Street is one of the busier areas of town, particularly during school morning and afternoon “rush” hours. On each side of the road is a receptacle to place the flag when you have used it.

Be aware of your surroundings and stay safe!
