The Town of Swayzee recently released its annual Water Quality Report (CCR) for 2021.
The EPA requires community water systems to deliver a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), also known as an annual drinking water quality report, to their customers each year by July 1st. These reports provide Americans with information about their local drinking water quality. Your CCR can help you make informed choices about the water you drink.
Neighborhood Watch program
Our Town Marshal is looking to start a Neighborhood Watch Program which will be independent of the Town Council and run by Swayzee residents.
Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the participation of neighbors in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime, solve problems, and prevent crimes from occurring.
What Neighborhood Watch requires is each citizen to become more aware of their own neighborhood by being alert and observant and to call the police immediately to report suspicious activity or crimes. The Neighborhood becomes the “eyes and ears” of the police department.
WHAT ARE SOME BENEFITS OF STARTING A WATCH GROUP?
Partnerships with law enforcement and your neighbors
Reduction in crime
Creates a greater sense of security and reduces fear of crime
A more secure and better prepared neighborhood
A more united community
Builds bonds with neighbors, so people look out for one another
TYPICAL NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH MEETING AGENDA
Report suspicious activity
Discuss home security
