Hagerstown property owners are being asked to remove items, vehicles and debris that might be blocking their electric meter so that installers of new meters can access them to replace them.
The project to replace the town’s about 1,080 meters is scheduled to begin at the end of August and might take a month to complete, Town Clerk Julie Neal told Hagerstown Council members at an August meeting.
Neal said an alert will be sent to residents when the project begins. The contractors installing the meters will be in white vans with Illinois plates, she said. The installers don’t need to enter the home or business, but they are expected to knock on the door to let the occupants know they are there.
The meter replacement project was approved by council in fall 2021 at a base cost of more than $300,000.
