Harvey County Sheriff’s Office recenlty released the following statement
Starting Monday, Westar Energy will be replacing electric meters. They will begin on the southwest part of the County and the northeast part of the City of Newton. Everyone’s meter will get changed out. The changing of the meters will just take a few minutes, but there will be a short period of time when you will not have electric power to your house. The installers will knock on your door to let you know they are there to change the meter out. They will be wearing vests and hard hats with identification of “Oasis working for Westar” Their work trucks will have signs on them saying the same thing. They will provide you with information about the meter being changed out and recommend that you shut off electronic appliances when they change out the meters.
They will be informing the Sheriff’s Office each day to let us know where they will be working.
