Police Chief Mosher warns of scams

As the Fountain City Council met for its monthly meeting on April 7, 2016, Police Chief Mosher warned of scams that area residents have experienced.

On March 28, Mosher received a report of a scam off Craigslist. These types of scams have an individual posing as a seller, then the person sends a check for a much larger amount and wants the buyer to cash the check and send the difference back to them. The buyer later finds out the check is no good.

Mosher has talked with several people lately who have gotten calls that are scams. Generally the calls are a recording stating there will be a lawsuit against them by the IRS.

If you receive these phone calls, hang up and report to local law enforcement if you are concerned.

March 3 - report of a sick cat that had been at a residence for three days. Chief Mosher found the cat to be a nice cat and took it home, where it has remained.

March 8 - ordered two stop signs which were previously approved for Pine Street between second and third streets. The signs and the posts have arrived and once utilities and such are located, the signs will be placed. A resident near the proposed placement spot has concerns about where the signs will be placed, which will be addressed.

March 13 - called out for a suicidal individual, which “caused a lot of commotion in Fountain,” stated Mosher. Two Fillmore County police cars, Chatfield police, Preston police, a Rochester canine unit and Chief Mosher responded and searched for approximately two hours before locating the individual. The situation “worked out pretty well” in the end, stated Mosher.

March 16 - completed e-citation telephone conference training. E-citations will soon take the place of paper citations.

Consent agenda items were approved, including minutes from the March 3, 2016 meeting, treasurer’s report, and monthly city bills/fire department bills.

The council requested a spreadsheet showing service contract bids on the water tower to view all work to be done and by what company.

A quote to purchase a power broom from K & R equipment was received. Councilmember Schott proposed renting the power broom for the few days a year the city needs it rather than purchasing one.
