Smart Meters are coming to Weybridge

aep-meterYou’ll be seeing AEP Ohio in your area in the coming months as we begin installing new smart meters in your neighborhood. It’s a simple process of upgrading the old meter for the new, with a brief power disruption of only a few minutes. Your neighborhood will be notified by mail and phone approximately three weeks in advance of the meter exchange.

Your new smart meter helps keep the power flowing, improves response times and speeds outage repairs. After installation, AEP Ohio will no longer need access to your property to read your meter — simplifying the billing process by eliminating estimated bills. Your smart meter will also give you the power to manage and control your energy usage, helping you save money without sacrificing your comfort.

You can go to the AEP website for more information on the Smart Meters program. There is also a video on that site showing just how easy the new smart meter is to install.

Pet Management in Weybridge

Did you know there are both laws and rules on the books about how you handle your pet in Dublin, in Muirfield, and therefore in Weybridge, too?

City of Dublin code specifically states dogs must be kept “under control” when off leash in public areas, or must otherwise be on a leash. They don’t mention cats being on a leash because… you know… they’re cats.

Similarly, you may have seen repeated email reminders from Muirfield Village that pet owners — especially folks walking their pets — are required to pick up after their pets when they do their business, if you know what we mean.

These rules and laws are in place to keep Weybridge (and Muirfield, and Dublin) clean and presentable, as well as safe for the pets, kids, and everyone else enjoying our common areas, walking trails, yards, and so forth.

So please: leash your cat — or dog — or keep them under control, but also be sure to clean up after them. Your neighbors will thank you!
