Operation Lifesaver (www.oli.org),
the rail safety education nonprofit organization, urges professional
photographers to refrain from taking photos of high school seniors,
wedding parties, and other subjects on train tracks or trestles.
Here are Operation Lifesaver's six “must-know" tips for professional
photographers considering a photo shoot near the tracks:
Trains can’t stop quickly to avoid people or vehicles on the tracks.
An optical illusion makes it hard to determine a train's distance
from you - and its speed.
average train overhangs the track by at least three feet.
Railroad tracks, trestles, yards and rights-of-way are private
No tracks should be assumed to be abandoned or inactive.
People in your community mimic your behavior.

The Tomah Police Department will be working to educate the
citizens of our great community on different ordinances. As of
late, we have focused on buildings within the City of Tomah that
don't have building numbers ...displayed
as described in the ordinance below. If contact is not made with
the property owner a warning/notice will be placed in a mailbox
or other conspicuous location. Whether contact is made or not a
warning will be issued for tracking purposes and enforcement
action, if necessary. The property owner will have 15 days to
correct the violation. If a property owner needs additional time
they need to contact the Tomah Police Department.
Please go to
www.tomahonline.com and at the top of the page there is a
link for ‘MUNICIPAL CODE.' This is a very handy tool to quickly
locate ordinances concerning the City of Tomah. Enter a key word
into the search bar and you’ll get results that should allow you
to quickly locate the desired information.
I will be overseeing this project and any questions or concerns
can be directed to me at 608-374-7512 or by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s all work together to make this
community better than it already is. We thank you for your
continued support and cooperation.
