Eversource Warns Customers to Beware of Scams

“A common scam impacting New Hampshire energy customers – especially small businesses – involves a fraudster calling and stating that due to a customer’s “delinquent” account, a truck has been dispatched to disconnect their service unless a payment is made within a short time frame. Scammers usually demand immediate payment with a gift card or prepaid debit card, such as Green Dot MoneyPak, Vanilla or Reloadit purchased from a local retailer, in order to stop the disconnection of services. The scammers will provide the victim with a phone number to call back with their prepaid debit card information.”

” ‘The key to stopping these scammers is to stay calm – don’t panic and don’t pay,’ said Penni Conner, Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer at Eversource. ‘Together with our fellow energy companies, retailers and local law enforcement, we’re urging any of our customers who receive a suspicious phone call or home visit to call us at 1-800-662-7764 to verify ANY request for payment or personal information.’ ”

Nov 30 Second Public Hearing on Proposed Amendments to the Zoning Ordinance

On November 2, the Pittsfield Planning Board had its first public hearing on the proposed amendments to the zoning ordinance, and the planning board would like to thank the people who attended the meeting. Unfortunately, the business of the night kept the public hearings on the zoning amendments from starting until 9:30 PM. We apologize to those people who attended the meeting but had to leave before the public hearings began. The planning board has scheduled a second public hearing for Thursday, November 30, at 7:00 PM at the town hall. To ensure that no delays happen on November 30, the board will schedule no other business for the November 30 meeting. The public hearing will start promptly at 7:00 PM. For the convenience of people who cannot attend the November 30 meeting, the planning board will accept written testimony and questions prior to the meeting. The planning board looks forward to our discussions regarding these issues. Full copies of the amendments can be found online or at the town hall.
