ROAD WORK UPDATE 10.20.14 :
Due to the amount of pavement removed on Orangewood Drive the Service Director has determined that for the safety of the residents and motoring traffic Orangewood Drive will be restricted to one way traffic effective immediately. Beechmont Trail to Lander Road will be open to east bound traffic only. It is hoped to be completed within a week. We apologize for any inconvenience during this construction project.
When the repairs are completed on Orangewood the contractor will move to a few repairs on Orange Place. Final repairs will be completed on the North end of Lander Road. These repairs are extensive and will require the use of temporary signals to control traffic as it will be reduced to one lane. There will be backup and delays for about a week until the repairs are completed. These repair will take place at the end of the month. Advanced warning signs will be posted prior to the start of this repair work.
Asphalt Paving on Lander Road has been completed. The contractor will move to complete patches in Orange Tree, on Beacon Hill and Jackson Road. All work should be completed in about four to five days.
Imposter Calls from 'U.S. Treasury' Targeting Ohioans
(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today warned that Ohio consumers are receiving scam phone calls from individuals pretending to represent the U.S. Treasury.
The Ohio Attorney General’s Office has received approximately 50 reports of the scam in the last four weeks. more ...
“It can be intimidating to get a call from someone claiming to represent the government and threatening you by demanding immediate payment or personal information,” Attorney General DeWine said. “These kinds of calls are almost always scams.
When in doubt, hang up and call a number you know is legitimate. Don’t use the number provided by the caller.”
In one variation of the scam, the consumer receives a call from a phone number with a 323 or 213 (Los Angeles) area code. The caller, “Steve,” claims to be with the U.S. Treasury. He says the consumer owes money for taxes and will be investigated or arrested unless the consumer makes an immediate payment.
The phone number may be “spoofed,” or disguised, to conceal the true origin of the call.
Most consumers do not report losing money to the U.S. Treasury imposter scams, but consumers who respond to the calls may start to receive more unsolicited calls. (By responding to scam calls, consumers reveal that their phone number belongs to a real person.)
On Tuesday, Attorney General DeWine announced that he and 38 other state attorneys general were urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to determine whether phone companies could use call-blocking technology to better protect consumers from unwanted calls and scams.
In their letter to the FCC, the attorneys general asked for a formal opinion on whether phone companies could use call-blocking technology, upon a consumer’s request, to block unsolicited phone calls when the caller appears to be a telemarketer.
Consumers who suspect a scam or unfair business practice should contact the Ohio Attorney General’s Office at www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov or 800-282-0515.
U.S. Treasury or IRS impersonation scams can be reported to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at www.tigta.gov or 800-366-4484.

New Parking Lot Retrofit Project Complete.
The Orange Village Green Parking Lot at the new Service Facility is now complete. Residents are encouraged to visit the new site and learn about going green. Information signs are posted on site and brochures are available for residents who wish to learn more. The sites main feature is a permeable paver parking lot, which allows water to pass through the pavement and slowly dissipate back into the ground rather than being directly discharged into the storm sewer. Also featured is a bio-retention cell which captures the water from the roof drains, stores the water and then allows the plants and ground to slowly absorb the water rather than being directly discharged into the storm sewer. Finally the Service Facility is home of the Orange Village Recycling Center where residents are able to drop off items for Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District collection programs.
