District Updates

Dear Friend,
As summer ends and back to school begins, I wanted to take the time to wish you and your family a happy and safe Labor Day! Please note that while City Hall will be closed in observance of the holiday, residential garbage, recycling and yard waste collection will occur as scheduled.
Thank you to all of the workers that make this country a great place to live and raise a family!
As always, thank you for your continued support.
Warm Regards,
Signature_Robert_1

NEW WEBSITE ALERT!
The City of Orlando is getting a new website. We are transforming our website into a service-based platform, which currently brings more than 60 city services online, including popular requests such as tree trimming, pot hole notification, police services, permitting services and more. The final orlando.gov website will launch in early 2019. The Beta site was highlighted by Mayor Dyer in his State of the City speech last month as he noted, “We have set a goal of becoming the first municipality to fundamentally transform the way cities do business and interact with residents on daily basis,” said Mayor Dyer. “We sought to reinvent Orlando’s web and mobile sites, turning them into service-based platforms, allowing our residents to conduct business with us on their time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and we are well on our way to making that a reality.”  I would appreciate your help in getting some feedback. Check out our new website, and let us know what you think by emailing me at robert.stuart@cityoforlando.net. I want to share your ideas and concerns with our staff.

INTERNET SAFETY FROM THE ORLANDO POLICE DEPARTMENT!
Hi,
I am Georgeanna Butler, the Orlando Police Department’s Crime Prevention Specialist for District 3 and I wanted to share 3 tips to prevent internet crimes.
  • Avoid free screensavers, smiley faces and other free stuff unless you absolutely know the download is safe. It’s the safest way to make sure you don’t infect your computer with crimeware, adware and other nasty stuff that can steal your information and ruin your computer.
  • Call your bank, service provider or institution to verify any emails before you click on any links or fill out any forms. Also remember, the IRS NEVER emails taxpayers, so anything from the IRS is really a phishing scam.
  • Check your security on a regular basis. You should evaluate your computer security at least twice a year-do it when you change the clocks for daylight savings! Make sure you have the security level appropriate for your needs.
