Met-Ed Scam ALERT

Met-Ed’s Department of External Affairs has asked the Township to post the following information:

Met-Ed customers are urged to be aware of the ongoing, nationwide scam involving a telephone caller posing as a utility company employee threatening to shut off power unless immediate payment is made.

If your Met-Ed account is past-due, you will receive a written notice of your account status, with instructions on how to avoid disconnection of service. While a Met-Ed representative may call a customer whose bill is in arrears in order to remind them that a payment is due, the representative would explain how a payment can be made using our established payment options. They will NOT demand payment over the phone.

If a caller threatens to shut off your power unless immediate payment is received, hang up. If you wish to verify your account status or the identity of a Met-Ed employee, please call 1-800-545-7741.

The Township is interested in individuals who are interested in Alsace Township’s history for the generations to come!

Alsace Township is in the process of having gatherings to collect historical photos of the Township to create a photo history of this wonderful Township. If you do not have any photos, that is OK too! We also need people who can provide information about the Township and its history.  Before the “old stories” are gone and photos faded, we want to capture Alsace’s wonderful history for the future!  So, if you have a piece of history to share, please join us as we create this new “History Group”.  Perhaps one of you might even come up with a good name for the group!

If you are one of these dedicated, interesting people, call the Township at 610-929-5324 and leave your name and number.  You can also email the Township at alsacetwp@comcast.net with your contact information.  We will have our first meeting when we have enough interested residents.  Bring your ideas and photos!
