Residents Reducing Wildfire Risk
Community Project for May 6, 2017 9-12am We, on the Spring City Wildfire Council, have the opportunity of offering help on your property to remove potential fire hazards of dead shrubs, old wood structures, debris, etc. This is for FREE!! This effort will be an ongoing project throughout several years. We need property owners to volunteer their property, give permission, and oversee their own property work—if they so choose. We also need volunteers to help with the removal: Men with chainsaws & youth with energy, and anyone with a desire to help our community. This is a service opportunity for groups, scouts, clubs, etc. Gloves are a must, sturdy shoes, cutters, chainsaws, wagons and wheelbarrows needed.

The Chief's Corner
Spring time not only brings good weather but an increase of illegal activity. Please be aware of fraud schemes that are very real and active in our area. If it is too good to be true it usually is. If an opportunity falls outside of normal business transactions let that be a red flag to you.
When you sell an item and the buyer sends you more money than you ask, be cautious, regardless of the buyer’s excuse. It is a common scheme to give you hundreds to thousands more in money than you are asking for, then requesting you to send the excess to another person or account. You may have received a cashier’s check. The bank even accepted it.
On the surface it looks and sounds very valid. It is not. After a short period of time the cashier’s check will come back to you as a forgery and you will be responsible. If you have any question don’t hesitate to call your bank and ask about the situation. I am also happy to listen to situations you are suspicious about.
As a reminder Spring City Ordinance says:
(6-2-5) OHV’s also known as ATV’s are limited in speed to 15 miles per hour in town.
(6-2-4) OHV’s may not be driven on Main Street except between Center and 100 North. This will allow access to the Post Office and the gas station.
Note: If your OHV is registered as a vehicle, which includes having license plates and insurance, the Main Street exception does not apply to your OHV and normal vehicle speed traffic laws apply.
(6-2-3) Persons under 8 years of age my not operate an OHV on any Spring City street or roadway.
Operating an OHV between ages 8 and 16 the operator must be under the direct visual supervision of an adult 18 years of age or older holding a valid driver’s license.
Persons ages 16 and older must have a driver’s license to operate an OHV in Spring City.
Any operator under age 18 must have a properly fitted and fastened U.S. Department of Transportation safety rated helmet.
The above laws are paraphrased. I am not an attorney nor do I give legal advice. To read and understand the law in its entirety the Spring City Code can be accessed through the Spring City Web site.
