The City received a report of someone attempting to gain entrance into a residence by claiming they were there to read the utility meters inside. In most cases, meter reading and utility access will take place outside of the residence. Residents are reminded that City staff, and contractors, will be wearing uniforms, driving marked vehicles, and carrying proper identification. Residents may also call the relevant City Department to verify identity. Solicitors/canvassers are required to obtain an approved license/permit from the City prior to going door-to-door. (This excludes political and religious canvassers)
Safety concerns should be reported to the Bowling Green Police Division by calling 419-352-1131.
