HARASSMENT - POTSDAM - Village police charged Kimberly A. Elliott, 46, of Potsdam with second-degree harassment at 9:44 a.m. Monday. She was served with court papers stemming from a Dec. 13 domestic dispute on Racquette Road.
RETRACTION - POTSDAM - After receiving correspondence from attorneys representing Home Serve USA, the Potsdam Village Police Department is retracting the earlier public address message concerning what was believed at that time to be a mass mailing scam. It has come to this departments attention that Home Serve USA is a legitimate business, although the police department is not issuing any endorsement for this type of insurance. As with any other type of insurance, it remains the property owners responsibility to determine if the service is necessary and appropriate for their property.
