Concerned About Airport Noise?
CM Palmisano is requesting that you write a letter to your MAC Commissioner letting him or her know how airport noise affects you before the next MAC meeting on December 15.
CM Palmisano recently sent out a newsletter with more details and information on Airport Noise and Runway Use System. The newsletter can be found at http://content.govdelivery.com/accou…/MPLS/bulletins/e09f4c…
You can skip to the summary at the bottom of newsletter to find out how to contact your MAC Commissioners with your concerns.
ALERT! IRS Scam Using MPD Number
MPD has received reports from people who said that they were contacted by someone who claimed to be with the IRS. The caller ID showed the Fifth Precinct's main number (612) 673-5705. This is a scam. No government agency will ever call you asking for personal information like credit card numbers, bank account numbers, social security numbers, or more.
Do not give personal information to anyone who calls or emails you unexpectedly, even if they claim they are with an official government organization or bank. Even if the caller ID appears to be legitimate, if something is suspicious or someone is asking you for personal information, do not give it. After you hang up, call the official phone number of the organization and verify directly with them if it is legitimate before giving any personal identifying information.
See the flyer with more information and you can share with neighbors.
