2. Accolades are also due to the Abbington HOA for putting on another fantastic Pig Pickin’.

In line for 'cue!

Residents enjoyed delicious BBQ and all the fixin’s on yet another picture perfect fall day. This is always a fun community get together – grown ups get to chat and catch up while kids burn off their energy in the bounce house. Thank you HOA board members!

3. The Apex Police Department would like everyone to be aware of a phone scam taking place in our area which involves a utility customer receiving a call from someone who fraudulently identifies themselves as a utility company employee. The customer is advised their utilities will be cut off if their bill is not immediately paid through a third-party payment system. The scammer then asks for a prepaid debit card or credit card information. If you receive a call, you may contact the Town of Apex Utility Billing/Customer Service Dept at 362-8676. We suggest you call that number immediately after receiving a suspicious call to determine if it is legitimate or not. The Customer Service Dept’s info is available HERE.

4. New officers assigned to Community Police Officer (CPO) program: Matthew Hunter & JT Allen. The CPO works closely with neighborhood communities to identify problems of crime and disorder. To stay up to date on the latest police news and activity, you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
