            AND make sure to change the batteries in ALL your smoke detectors!!!

Trick-or-Treat: Thanks Saegertown Fire Dept.:

Once again, we had a safe and successful trick-or-treat night. We want to thank the fire Department for directing traffic and keeping things under control.

Frozen Water Meters:

Customers are responsible if their water meters become frozen and break. If they are in an area where there is no heat, we suggest placing some insulation to protect them. A new residential meter costs about $155.
