  • BBB Warns: Don’t Fall for Do Not Call Scam

     Scammers have been making phone calls posing as representatives of the National Do Not Call Registry. The calls claim to provide an opportunity to sign up for the registry or ask consumers to verify their information. Of course, the callers are really trying to solicit personal information, which opens victims up to identity fraud.

  • BBB: Be careful with online dating

     Are you looking for love this Valentine’s Day? Millions use dating and social networking sites to meet people.

  • Renters should pay

That way the property owners can understand what the Council has given our rights away as property owners when we rent the property out and the renters do not pay the bills for the collection of trash removal service. I have not seen in writing how the contract reads with the city and Eco-Tech. The only thing I have seen is what Eco-Tech says we owe on the bill they sent out.
