IRS Phone Scam
Residents should be aware of an IRS scam involving callers claiming to be the Internal Revenue Service and demanding immediate payments with a prepaid debit card or wire transfer. These callers sometimes also threaten arrest or deportation.
In most circumstances, the IRS generally contacts taxpayers first by mail or with personal visits from field agents. It does not accept credit card information by phone.
Please contact the Bartlett Police Department if you fell victim to this latest telephone scam.
Lane Closure on IL Route 25
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that, weather permitting, a road reconstruction project on IL Route 25/Stearns Road to Dunham Road in South Elgin will begin Tuesday, April 1.
The work will involve complete reconstruction of a portion of IL Route 25/Stearns Road, construction of additional new traffic lanes, a new storm sewer and traffic signals. In addition, a new roadway bridge span, along with a new bridge carrying the Union Pacific Railroad over IL 25 will be constructed. Work will be done under staged construction with one lane open in each direction. The project has an anticipated completion date of August 31, 2015.
Motorists can expect delays during times when the lane closures are in effect and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signing in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
