County residents are receiving a telephone call from someone who identifies
himself as a Sheriff’s Lieutenant and tells them that Superior Court Judge Keith
Harper has signed documents charging them with failure to appear for jury
duty on October 3rd and contempt of court. People are told that
they need to appear before Judge Harper on October 24th to
answer these charges, and told they should make an online payment as an
appearance bond via GreenDot MoneyPak. THIS IS NOT TRUE.
Please do not give or confirm any personal information, and do not make a
payment online. You do not need to appear on October 24th.
There was no jury trial held on October 3rd. This is a
phishing scam. You may call Ruth Gordon, County Clerk at 360-385-9128

MRC) REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
County Noxious Weed Control Board is looking for volunteers!
Noxious weeds are a major ecological threat and have a severe
detrimental effect on the economy. Controlling these weeds greatly supports
your local natural areas (forests, meadows, or watersheds), the
accompanying wildlife (salmon, deer, or bees), and the local economy
(farmers, orchards, or forestry).
The Jefferson County Noxious Weed Control Board has an
increased budget and staff this year and aims to play a much more impactful
role in noxious weed management from here on out. One of our main goals is
to set up a large volunteer base which we could call upon whenever high
priority infestations cannot be controlled otherwise.
If you are interested in signing up to be on our volunteer
list and receive notifications for weed control events please contact the
Weed Board Coordinator Joost Besijn by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or
call (360) 379-5610 ext. 205.
