Sherri Bevan Walsh Alert! 5-20/2016

ALERT!

Credit Card "skimmer" scams have been hitting this area hard. You may have filled up at your local gas station without noticing a thing, but scammers may have attached a skimmer to the card reader.  These devices 'skim' your card's information off the magnetic strip.  Once the card is run through the skimmer, the data is recorded, the crooks can sell the information on the internet, at which point counterfeit cards are made.  The criminals go on spending sprees with a cloned copy of the credit or debit card. 

Oftentimes, the crooks have also set up a camera nearby.  The camera captures the user typing their card PIN into an ATM machine.  With your PIN and skimmed information, scammers can access and withdraw money from your account.

To protect yourself from an ATM skimmer:

*  Use ATM's at banks whenever possible, rather than standalone machines;
*  Protect your PIN. Place your hand over the keypad when entering your number;
*  Look for signs of skimmers.  Tape is often used to attach skimming devices; if something looks odd, wiggle it to make sure it doesn't   come loose;
*  Don't accept "help" from someone other than a bank employee to use teh ATM machine, decline and leave;
*  Be cautious of ATM failures;
*  Report any problems.  Only call a number you know is real, such as the one on the back of your card.  Don't call a number posted next to the ATM as it could be part of the scam.

If you have been a victim of credit card skimming contact your local authorities and file a police report.  Contact your bank or credit card issuer immediately and tell them your card data has been stolen.  If you report quickly, federal law caps your liability at $50.

Stay Safe,

Sherri Bevan Walsh

Copley Township ODOT Projects

Start date is May 9 weather permitting and the completion date for the entire project is June 30.  Please click the link below to view ODOT plans. 

Beginning 6/9, the SB side of SR21 at Minor Road will be constructed with the NB side to follow another weekend.  Work will start on 6/9 during the day within the normal zone times.  Starting  Friday at 6pm, a "permanent" zone on SB SR21 will be placed for the entire weekend until possibly 2pm Monday.  In addition, during that same time frame of the "permanent zone", Minor Road on the west side of SR21 will be closed at SR21.  No access to SR21 will be allowed from the west on Minor Road.

Because of the 4 individual locations of work this project will be split into two separate set of jobs. The first set will be the I77/NB to SR21SB ramp improvement work and the SR 21 median turnarounds and they’ll be done at the same time. Closure of the SR21 ramp will be for 14 days and the detour route will be I77 to Ghent Road. Once that project has been completed they will begin the SR21/ Minor Road acceleration/deceleration lane installations. Hard closures will be on Minor Road at SR21 but of course local traffic will have access to their homes up to that point. Advance warning signs will be placed at Medina Line Road and Cleveland-Massillon Road so anyone turning on those roads will know there’s no SR21 access. The northbound side will be closed first for 14 days and when that is totally done they will flip over to the southbound side for the same amount of time.

Republic Trash Contract 2017

At the October 7, 2015 Trustees Meeting the Trustees approved entering into an exclusive 5-year trash collection contract with Republic Waste. 

The reasons were to reduce the number of trucks on our roads, make trash and recycling volumes reporting simpler, and, most importantly, to reduce the cost of collection service to our residents. The prices in the table reflect the per/month fee for each type of service. The contract will start on January 1, 2016 and Republic will be sending out literature to all the residents with the details of how this contract will work.

Be sure to call Republic Services to complete your account set up at 1-800-247-3644.

Each resident will receive a 96 gallon trash cart and a 65 gallon recycle cart.  Both are on large wheels for ease of movement.  Trash is picked up weekly and recycling is picked up every two weeks.  Please see the map below for pickup days.

Residents are allowed to use their existing trash containers for extra trash that will not fit into the 96 gallon but are encouraged to use the supplied cart.  Republic is anticipating to automate the system in 2018 and the carts will be a necessity.
