Just a reminder that if you wish to ride your ATV/Four Wheeler during the Sucker Day festivities, you will need to purchase a temporary permit for the day. The temporary permit can be obtained from City Hall for $5.00 and will be good for Sucker Day only. If you already have a permit for your golf cart or side by side you do not need to buy another permit. Operator must be a licensed driver. Operation shall only be the hours of sunrise and sunset. Operation must only be upon city authorized streets. Operators may drive on state highways only if making a perpendicular crossing of a state highway located within the boundaries of the city. The only exception to that will be during the parade and only along the parade route. I want to make this day as fun and safe as possible! Please use a helmet and proper riding gear. Use common sense and respect for others safety around you. Thank you! Chief Joe Chitwood If you have any questions please contact the Wetumka Police Department 405-452-3273 City Hall 405-452-3251

IRS IMPERSONATION PHONE SCAMS. Residents have received phone calls from IRS impersonators. The impersonators are threatening that the call receiver will be arrested if he or she does not comply. This scam, and other phone scams, will likely continue as long as people continue falling for them. WHAT TO DO Just hang-up; Do not provide them with any information. If you believe that you might owe federal taxes, you can call the IRS at 1(800)829-1040 to confirm and/or work out arrangements. If you do not owe taxes, you can report the scam to the Treasury Inspector General for the Tax Administration by filling out this form https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml ADDITIONAL SAFETY INFO It is good practice to never give your personal information to ANYONE that calls you, no matter what the Caller ID shows. If they claim to be a person or business that you are affiliated with, use a phone number from a trusted source to call them back at.

We hope everyone comes out and has a great time. All laws are ordinances will be enforced except for in designated “ burnout” areas.

School starts tomorrow, help us keep the kids safe! Please be aware of the school zones as well as the children at bus stops and children crossing the streets. WPD will be out enforcing the school zones as well as safety restraints.
