Wagner Road Safety Improvements
April 8, 2019
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is excited to announce two new projects planned on Wagner Road in Scio and Lodi Townships in 2020.
These projects will focus on improving safety along Wagner Road and will be funded with a grant from the Highway Safety Improvement Program through the Michigan Department of Transportation. Construction will take place during the 2020 construction season.
Here’s a summary of the planned improvements:
- Wagner Road from Ann Arbor-Saline Rd to Liberty Road
- Install centerline rumble strips, recessed durable pavement markings, construct a left turn lane and install an overhead beacon at Waters Road, and spot drainage improvements
- Wagner Road from Liberty Road to Huron River Drive
- Enhanced curve delineation, recessed durable pavement markings, signal modernization at Dexter-Ann Arbor Road, signal timing optimization along the corridor and spot drainage improvements.
WCRC will hold a public information meeting about these projects in early 2020. For additional information on this project, contact Brent Schlack, assistant director of engineering, (734) 327-6670 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

From the Sheriffs’s Office: Identity Fraud / Mail Theft Incidents
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s office has issued the following warning: The information below explains the warning and provides actions you can take to protect your family and yourself. Residents in Scio and Lodi Township neighborhoods have been the victims of identity fraud and mail theft incidents. The neighborhoods that have been hit in Scio thus far are High Hollow, Sandy Creek, Malena, Trillium Crossing and Greenook in Loch Alpine. All of the incidents that have occurred are within neighborhoods where the mailboxes are grouped together. Most of those neighborhoods have open mailboxes – where anyone could go through them. Personal information was obtained from all of the victim’s. Social security numbers were obtained to apply for several different credit cards online. Most of the credit cards applied for were through Fidelity. Others applied for were Ally, Elan, Capitol One, American Express and Fifth Third. The cards were then mailed to the victim’s residence. Some of the victim’s received the cards prior to the suspect’s taking them from their mailbox and others the suspects were able to retrieve the new cards prior to the victim’s having any knowledge of the accounts being opened. The suspects were then using the new credit cards at various Best Buy’s and Walmart’s throughout the state to make purchases of Apple watches, IPads and gift cards. A majority of the victim’s found out that their residence had been signed up for Informed Delivery through the US Postal Service. This is a program that every home can be registered for (only one occupant of the home can register). You will receive a daily email from the Post Office with photographs of the mail you will be receiving that day. The suspects were signing the victim’s residence up for Informed Delivery and receiving the email notifications showing when the newly obtained credit cards would be arriving. The suspects would then retrieve the mail from the mailboxes the day the credit cards were being delivered. You can sign up for Informed Delivery at this website: https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/pages/intro/start.action Some important points to consider. Sign yourself up for one of the credit apps; Credit Sesame, Credit Karma, etc., to monitor any activity on your credit account. These are apps you can install on your smart phone and check daily. You can see if there have been any hard inquiries on your credit for openings of new accounts. Put a flag on your account to be notified prior to any new accounts being opened. If you’ve been a victim of an identity theft or fraud, get a copy of the police report and send it to one of the three credit bureaus to have 7 year fraud protection which will not allow any new accounts to be opened without being contacted first. If you find that someone obtained a fraudulent credit card in your name here are some important things to do and/ask:
- Cancel the card immediately
- Ask if the card has been used. If it’s been used find out date/time, store location, amounts, items purchased
- How was the credit card opened (online?)
- IP address used to apply for the credit card
- Time of the IP address submission
Video or Cable Television Issues?
The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) is responsible for the implementation and oversight of Public Act 480 of 2006. Section 10 of the Act provides a video/cable dispute resolution process at the MPSC to be used by customers, providers and franchise entities. This dispute resolution process allows customers who are unable to resolve their video/cable television complaints with their provider to file a complaint with MPSC. The video/cable web page can be found here. The webpage includes information such as the complaint process, the Act, a current listing of active video/cable providers in Michigan, information for franchise entities, as well as other important information.
