US-36 Lane Closures, Businesses Still Accessible

Beginning Thursday, March 10, portions of the right lane of westbound US-36 will be closed, due to construction work.

Please note that during this time, businesses will remain normal business hours, and the drums and cones layout will provide vehicle access to the businesses at all times. 

The Town appreciates your continuous support of local businesses. 

Railroad Avenue Closure

Please be advised that Railroad Avenue, between Park Street & 2nd Avenue will be temporary closed, due to construction. Please use other routes accordingly.

Kurt Carlson Skatepark Update

Kurt Carlson Skatepark Update

Half-pipe Closure

It was recently discovered that the half-pipe ramp in the Kurt Carlson Skatepark had suffered more water damage than originally estimated, and was no longer sound. After considerable review from a third-party consultant, it was determined that the investment in rebuilding the ramp would be less practical than a new ramp or facility. 
Since the consultation, the Town has removed the half-pipe ramp, and reopened the park for use of other structures.

Construction of a new facility is being proposed as part of the Bohn Park planning and construction process, forecast to take place 2016-2018. Town staff hopes that those interested in such a facility will become involved in the public planning process.

IRS Fraud & Scams

It’s the season of tax returns and tax return identity theft reports. Con artists who claim to be with the IRS often use convincing tactics to lure people into a scam. The IRS offers five warning signs of a scam artist - the IRS does NOT:

  1. Call you to demand immediate payment. They will not call about taxes you owe without first mailing you a bill.
  2. Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the chance to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
  3. Require you to use a certain payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
  4. Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
  5. Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement to have you arrested for not paying.
If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here’s what to do: 
  • If you know you owe taxes or think you might owe, call the IRS at 800-829-1040 to talk about payment options. You also may be able to set up a payment plan online at
  • If you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to believe that you do, report the incident to TIGTA at 1.800.366.4484 or at
  • If phone scammers target you, also contact the Federal Trade Commission at Use their “FTC Complaint Assistant” to report the scam. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments of your complaint.
