There have been two reports in Eastborough in the last few weeks and several reports in the surrounding area of thefts from cars.
I would like to remind everyone to always lock your vehicles even in your own driveway and do not leave valuables such as cash, credit cards, electronic devices, etc. in your cars. Remember that it only takes a thief a few seconds to get into a car and leave without being noticed. Many times it is several days before someone notices they have been a victim.
Also it is a safety practice to always lock your vehicles as a sad story came from the Abilene Kansas area a few weeks ago when a toddler got into an unlocked vehicle in her own driveway while playing outside. She wasn’t noticed gone for a while then was found to have died in the hot car.
As always do not hesitate to call 911 if you see any suspicious people or activity in your neighborhood.

CELEBRATING 48 Years of Fair Housing
The City of Eastborough
WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States passed the Civil Rights Act of 1968, of which Title VII declared that the law of the land would now guarantee the rights of equal housing opportunity; and
WHEREAS, The City of Eastborough is committed to the mission and intent of Congress to provide fair and equal housing opportunities for all, and today, many realty companies and associations support fair housing laws; and
WHEREAS, the Fair Housing groups and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have, over the years, received thousands of complaints of alleged illegal housing discrimination and found too many that have proved upon investigation to be violations of the fair housing laws; and
Whereas, equal housing opportunity is a condition of life in our City that can and should be achieved,
I, Mayor of The City of Eastborough, on behalf of its citizens, do hereby proclaim the month of April as
