Fall Cleanup Scam Alert

Post Date:10/04/2017 11:58 AM
The City of Garden City has received notice of a scam that has affected at least one local resident during the citywide Fall Cleanup. 

According to a resident who called the City Administrative Center this morning, a man went to at least one house yesterday approximately 20 minutes after public works crews had completed the annual Fall Cleanup in their area and said he was collecting $25 from each residence for this service. 

The annual Fall Cleanup is a free service. Any fees incurred due to tire rims or extra tree branches (more than one truck load) will be discussed with residents before they are collected. Charges would appear on a utility bill. Public Works employees do not collect fees directly. 

If strangers approach you identifying themselves as City Employees, ask to see their City ID badge. If they cannot provide their badge, or if they are asking you for money, please call the Garden City Police Department at 620-276-1300.
