Neighborhood security alerts and final weather update; Friday, Sep 6, 7:45 PM

SECURITY ALERT

Northumberland County has been undergoing property reassessment for almost one year. The county hired a team of real estate appraisers who are visiting every property in the county and making assessments of property value. Most of them are driving vehicles with the county seal on both front doors.

HOWEVER: Northumberland County has received reports of an individual claiming to be with the reassessment team that the County has contracted to complete its latest reassessment. If this individual states that they are there to get additional measurements and cannot produce a Northumberland reassessment ID, call the Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office immediately at 804-580-5221 or by dialing 911.

An assessor visited our neighborhood earlier this summer. The one who looked at our house produced a county ID, introduced himself and was driving a county car.

The Northumberland County website posts alerts such as this one as well as other information of interest to county residents and property owners.

ANOTHER SECURITY ALERT

Our neighbors in the Sands on the Potomac neighborhood immediately downriver (East) of us report that recently there have been two instances of vehicle license plates being stolen from trailers parked at unoccupied homes. The sheriff’s office investigators surmise someone has stolen trailers and needs license plates for them.

We have had no such incidents reported in our neighborhood. Please check your property and let us know if anything looks amiss — and call the Sheriff — 804-580-5221 or 911

FINAL WEATHER UPDATE
