**********SCAM***************We have received several calls from people saying they have gotten a call from someone saying they are with the City of Holton and that they are behind on their electric bill and if they don't call a number given and arrange to pay in cash then their electric will be shut off in 45 min. THIS IS A SCAM!!!!! Just hang up on them. If you are at any risk of having your electric shut off you will be either called or have a letter of disconnect sent to you. There are so many scams going on and if you question the phone call you are receiving just tell them to mail you a letter in reference to the problem and then you will address it if need be. If you have any questions you can contact City Hall at 785-364-2127 or the Police Dept 785-364-2174

We always have people ask how we determine if it is a good day to burn or not. We check the Rangeland Fire Danger Forecast every morning and then again at least twice during the day @ http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=TOP&product=RFD&issuedby=TOP Then you can put in your zip code in the upper left hand corner of this page for your local forecast. The acceptable index and sustain wind speeds are listed below as they also are on your burn permits. No....if the winds are low in the mornings and picking up in the afternoon to a no burn status we will NOT allow burns that can not be extinguished quickly and easily. Occasionally it is necessary for the Fire Chiefs to make the decision on burning or NOT burning depending on various situations. Please be respectful of our decision to keep you, your neighbors, the public and our firemen safe. Remember you needed to renew your permits in 2016 so if you didn't please stop by any fire dept in Jackson Co and pick one up. If you have any questions please feel free to call 785-364-3123.

Just a heads-up: IRS phone call scams are still occurring. This is just a reminder that the IRS will NEVER call you and demand your personal information or discuss your tax information. If you get one of these calls do not give the person any information. Your best course of action is to just hang up on them.
