IRS Warns Taxpayers of Numerous Tax Scams Nationwide

Every tax season, there is an increase in schemes that target innocent taxpayers by email, by phone and on-line. The IRS and Security Summit partners remind taxpayers and tax professionals to be on the lookout for these deceptive schemes.

 
Winter Parking 

From November 15th - March 15th, no parking of any vehicle is permitted on either side of any City of Kentwood street between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. or at any other times in which on-street parking may impair or impede snowplowing, cleaning or maintenance operations.  For more information on this ordinance, please contact Code Enforcement at
(616) 656-6574.


Vehicle Safety Tips
On a cold winter morning it might seem like a good idea to start your car and let it warm up while you finish getting ready, but be extra careful if you do this. Unattended cars warming in driveways and parking lots are extremely easy targets for car thieves.
Vehicle Theft Prevention Tips:

- Never leave your vehicle running, or your keys in the car or ignition.
- Always roll up your windows and lock the vehicle.
- Always park in busy, well-lit areas.
 Never leave personal identification documents or credit cards in your vehicle.
- Copy your license plate and vehicle identification (VIN) numbers and keep them with you for quick referencing.


Exterior House Check

The Kentwood Police Department has implemented a program that provides community members with peace of mind through courtesy exterior home checks while they are away. To arrange a courtesy exterior house check, contact Vicki Highland at
(616) 656-6571.
