PUBLIC NOTICES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

*POLICING   (*updated May 17th*)

In 2021 Perry Township was able to utilize one-time American Rescue Act Funds to enter a funds matching contract with the Lake County Commissioners for limited policing through Lake County Sheriff’s Department. The current COPS agreement requires us to identify a continuing funding source to keep patrolling going beyond the first two years. We have had residents and business owners express their desire for a full-time permanent police presence. We will be establishing a community committee to address this challenge in the new year. Here you will find monthly activity reports that will be provided by the Lake County Sheriff’s Department Click here (April report)

*Door-to-Door Energy Solicitors Impersonating NOPEC Employees (posted May 3rd)

There have been several reports of door-to-door solicitors posing as NOPEC employees in several Northeast Ohio communities this Spring. As a reminder, NOPEC NEVER goes door-to-door or calls residents or small businesses to enroll them into your community’s natural gas and/or electric aggregation program. If someone knocks on your door posing as a NOPEC employee during normal business hours, ask for a business card or capture as much information as you can (company name, solicitor’s name, a phone number, copy of any paperwork/brochures they offer you, make, color and license plate number of car, etc.) and call city hall to report them.  After normal business hours, call NOPEC’s Customer Care Center at 855-667-3201, 24 hours, 7 days a week to report the encounter.  NOPEC will notify your community officials and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) of this illegal activity.  And remember, NEVER share your utility bill or account information with anyone that comes knocking on your door or contacts you are unprompted.
