Continued Reports of Mail Theft

March 9, 2019 - Mail theft in the Foothills continues to be a problem with new reports coming in from the Norman, Foothills and Scribner roads area specifically.  This appears to be a more frequent problem this winter in particular.  A number of gate locks were also found to be broken.  The Sheriff has made a number of arrests this last few months but the problem does continue.

 

To report ANY crime or suspicious behavior, please contact the Spokane County Sheriff's Office Crime Check at 509-456-2233. 



Website Update

February 13, 2019 - If your reading this, you will notice a bit of a change to FRA website appearance but hopefully no changes to the quality and information available to our Foothills residents.

 

The website has been moved to a new hosting platform and stewardship of the site is now being managed by Steve Keig, a local Foothills resident since 2014 and current FRA board member.

 

Many thanks go out to David Fisher for his many years of managing the FRA website.  The board and residents can never begin to thank him enough for the many years of service that he provided to our community, keeping us informed and to date on the happenings in our neighborhoods.

 

We are working hard to bring over all of the history contained in the old website so please be patient while photos, documents and stories from the past are put in our history folders.


Mail Theft

January 11, 2019 - Recently, 16 pieces of discarded mail were found in a ditch on Lincoln Rd and it was returned to the Post Office to re-deliver.

Also, a Foothills resident was notified by the Post Office that some of her mail, including a check was stolen.

So, there appears to be an active mail thief in our neighborhood.

Getting the word out the best we can might enable residents to be more vigilant and maybe we can deter some of this problem.
