Oak Harbor installing new water and electric meters

Over the next several months, the Village of Oak Harbor will begin installing new water and electric meters in homes and businesses throughout the entire service area. Our current meters range in age from just a few years old to over 40 years of being in service.  Working with Vanguard Utility Service, Inc. and HD Supply, installation of the new meters may require representatives of these organizations to enter your home or business if either or both of the meters are located inside the building. If both the electric and water meters are outside of the home or business, the representatives will attempt to notify the occupants prior to the change out by knocking on the door. If entry to the home or business is required, representatives will make several attempts at scheduling an appointment. The vendors will be establishing a local telephone number for residents to call to if an appointment needs to be made.
