PUBLIC NOTICE – KENTUCKY TRANSPORTATION CABINET – RESTRICTED RIGHT OF WAY

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community, Government, Updates

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet – District 4, Elizabethtown: Yard Sale, Political and Other Promotional Signs are Restricted on Right of Way – Illegally Placed Items are Being Removed

Mowing cycles are under way and illegally placed items along state maintained right of way areas are being removed. Residents, business operators and property owners along US and KY routes are reminded no signage is allowed on right of way other than official highway signs and items approved through a permit process. Particularly, with yard sales and property sales commonly taking place in spring along with the May Primary, related signs must be placed beyond right of way limits. Crews will not mow around illegally placed items. They will be removed. Items placed on right of way areas create significant delays for mowing crews and are potential hazards for mowing operators and passing motorists. They can create additional hazards by blocking sight distance or distracting drivers, particularly at intersections. All sale activities including parking should be off right of way limits.

It is also illegal to attach items such as flyers, posters, balloons or streamers to stop signs, highway markers or any other road sign or utility pole. Illegal placement on utility poles presents additional obstacles and potential dangers for utility crew workers.

Removed items will be taken to each county’s KYTC maintenance facility and held for a short period of time. Unclaimed materials will be trashed or recycled. If you have questions related to legal/illegal sign placement, please get in touch with KYTC District 4 in Elizabethtown at (270-766-5066).

KYTC District 4 serves Breckinridge, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties. With nearly 3,000 miles of roadway to maintain, we greatly appreciate cooperation within each community regarding illegally placed items along right of way areas.

PUBLIC NOTICE – INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY – ONLINE SCAMS

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community

Online Scams You Need To Know:
1 – PHISHING
Phishing scams are based on communication made via email or on social networks. Cyber criminals trick you into clicking malicious links and access a website that looks legit, but it’s actually controlled by them. You might end up giving your login credentials and other personal information.
2 – ROMANCE SCAMS
A romance scam usually takes place on social dating networks. Social networking sites are inevitable apps to look for love as well but you need to be careful because you never know who can you meet.
3 – TRAVEL SCAMS
You receive an email containing an amazing offer for an exceptional and hard to refuse destination that expires in a short period of time. The problem is that some of these offers actually hide some necessary costs until you pay for the initial offer. Others just take your money without sending you anywhere.
4 – FAKE NEWS SCAMS
Misleading resources and content found online is a serious problem that should concern our society. It makes impossible for people to distinguish between what’s real and what is not.
5 – TECH SUPPORT ONLINE SCAMS
These tech “experts” pretend to know everything about your computer, how it got hacked and many other details that help them gain your trust and convince victims into giving their sensitive information. Even worst, they try to convince potential victims to pay for unnecessary technical support services.
6 – SMS SCAMS
Smartphones are essential for communication, online shopping, banking or any other online activities. Be careful about these SMS you receive and don’t click on suspicious links that could redirect to malicious sites trying to steal your valuable data.
7 – MAKE MONEY FAST SCAMS
Cybercriminals lure you into believing you can make money in a fast and easy way on the internet. The fraudulent posting of non-existent jobs for a variety of positions is part of the online criminals’ arsenal. This is quite effective approach especially when someone is in a difficult financial situation.
