Identity theft - Annual community document shred  

Identity theft remains a concern anywhere you live. Especially this time of year because of income tax season. The Hesston Police Department has investigated numerous cases of identity theft or attempted identity fraud through the past couple of years. Everything from someone using a citizen’s identity to file a fraudulent tax return to mail being stolen out of mailboxes. In an effort to raise community awareness of identity theft, the Hesston Police Department and the Hesston Lion’s Club have partnered to bring a Shred-It truck to town for use by our citizens. The truck will be at the Hesston Police Department, 444 N. Lancaster, from 9:00a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 3rd

Hesston citizens and businesses are encouraged to bring documents such as receipts, payroll stubs, utility bills, credit card statements, duplicate checks, any financial records, tax records or any records with personal information to the Hesston Police Department to have them properly destroyed by Shred-It of Wichita. You don’t have to sort paper or remove paper clips or staples.  However, paper will need to be removed from any binders.  All confetti-sized paper by-products will be recycled. 

This service is being provided to the citizens of Hesston at no charge. We will also be accepting nonperishable food items by donation. All donations will be delivered  to the Hesston Resource Center. 

For more information call Chief Schroeder at 620-327-2020.


Hesston Connection

West Embers 4th Addition – The water distribution and wastewater lines have been completed, tested, and accepted for use. The next phase of this development is to complete the street. Vogts-Parga Construction has staked the street and started construction. The project adds 12 new lots to the West Embers subdivision and connects Knott Street with Morning Dew.

Railroad Crossing Upgrades - K&O railroad and their sub-contractor, CDL Electric, have complete upgrades to the crossing signals at Lincoln Boulevard and at Main Street.  The upgrade includes new towers, flashing signals and cantilevered gate arms.  The improvements were funded and administered by the Kansas Department of Transportation. The remaining work to be completed is to replace the crossing under another contract. Time frame for that has not been released yet.

Online Bill Pay: We are getting closer to launching online bill pay! One of the last remaining pieces of this feature is to situate the payment module into our website so that payments can be made in a secure online environment. We are working with our financial management company to make that happen. Barring unforeseen challenges in this process, we anticipate having the bill pay feature available for use by mid to late April. Thank you for being patient!
