BACK TO SCHOOL REMINDERS As summer draws to a close and children start heading back to school, family life can get pretty hectic. It’s important to remember, and share with your children, some key tips that will help keep them safe and healthy throughout the school year. Whether children walk, ride their bicycles or take the bus to school, it is vitally important that they and the motorists around them take proper safety precautions.


· Always use sidewalks when available. · Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. · Look left, right, and left again when crossing and keep a careful watch as you cross. · Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. · Watch for cars turning or backing up. · Put electronic devices down and keep your head up. · Never try to cross the street between parked cars. · Parents, practice walking to school with your child using sidewalks and crosswalks when available.


· Always wear a helmet when riding a bike. · Your helmet should be properly fitted and secure. · Ride single file on the right side of the road, come to a complete stop before crossing the street, and walk the bike across. · Stay alert for opening car doors

and other hazards. · Use hand signals when turning. · Wear bright colored clothing.


· Line up six feet away from the curb as the bus approaches. · If seat belts are available, buckle up. · Wait for the bus to stop completely before standing. · Do not cross in front of the bus if possible. Walk at least 10 feet in front of the bus before crossing so you can see the other cars on the road.


· Do not block crosswalks. · Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and take extra care in school zones. · Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians. · Never pass a bus loading or unloading children. · The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough back to allow them to safely enter and exit the bus.

If you expect to owe Mason City income taxes for 2019 and City taxes are not deducted from your paycheck, the Tax Office would like to remind you that it’s time to make a

quarterly payment. The State of Ohio changed the due dates for estimated payments. The due dates are April 15, June 15, September 15, and January 15. Please remember that 90% of your 2019 tax liability is due by January 15, 2020 to avoid a late payment penalty. Please make your quarterly payment by September 15. To assist you in making your payment, quarterly estimated payment vouchers are available online. You may also choose to pay your quarterly estimate via the online tax tool. Please visit www. imaginemason.org to find these forms and tools. If you need assistance in determining whether you need to make estimated payments or if you need to adjust your declaration, the Tax Office is glad to help. Please call 513.229.8535 for assistance.
