Scam-proof your doorstep

Watch out for those Door to Door salesmen. The City of American Falls requires door to door salesmen to apply for a Solicitors License before going door to door. They have to display the license the city issues them. Be cautious of anyone you allow into your home and any contract you may sign with them. If you have any questions or concerns about a salesman that may show up at your door, you can contact the Police Department to come check them out or to advise if there is a license issued for that person.

Nowadays, you can encounter a scam artist just about anywhere — online, over the phone and even at your door.

The City of American Falls requires all door to door solicitors to have a Solicitor License thru the city. To get this license the individuals pay a fee and go thru a back ground check. Then they are required to display the license that states it is thru the City of AF and has a picture and name of the individual. If you have someone show up to your door without a license you can call the Police Department. Please always be cautious of who you allow into your homes.

Have you seen me? Can you help? As you can see, there's a handicap accessible ramp missing from the west side boat dock . It didn't sink or float away. There's evidence at the scene that it was taken. The missing one looks identical to the one in the picture next to it with a rail and ramp. It was last seen on 5/21 around 3pm. Please call if you have ANY information, no matter how small you may think it is. These are specially made and unique.
