Message for Potomac Edison Customers:
Due to consecutive estimated bills, the reconfiguring or "renumbering" of meter reading routes, and the colder than normal weather in March, Potomac Edison customers may have questions about their electric bills. They are encouraged to phone call our Customer Contact Center @ 800-686-0011, where a representative can help them understand their bill and provide them with assistance if they believe they may have difficultly paying their bill. As part of the renumbering process, Potomac Edison placed automated phone calls on Monday 04/22/13 to our customers who received a bill covering a period of greater than 35 days (the normal billing cycle is 25 to 35 days) which could lead to a larger than expected bill. Every customer is different with a unique billing history, and those with questions about their bill are encouraged to call 800-686-0011 to have their bill reviewed and to understand the options available for assistance. Or, you may contact Jody McClintock with the Morgan County Commission office at email@example.com or 304-867-3131. Please leave your name, address, daytime phone number, account number and nature of your concern.
At the April 4, 2013 County Commission meeting, the County Commission approved and enacted a motion and order to ban all tobacco use on county owned properties, including recreational properties, county maintained properties, properties leased by the county (including the parking lot behind the courthouse) and all county owned vehicles effective immediately.
