Gas meter surveys underway near Bemidji

Minnesota Energy has contracted Business Technical Services to survey gas meters in the outskirt areas of Bemidji.

According to a release from the Bemidji Police Department, several suspicious person reports earlier in the week were related to the gas meter surveys.

The survey personnel will have a yellow utility vest marked with Minnesota Energy, and will be looking for gas meters on properties.

Once the meter is found, they’ll be updating the GPS location, taking photographs and answering questions about the condition of the meters via a mobile phone app, with each survey taking approximately five minutes.

If you have questions or concerns in regards to this project, you can contact the Project Manager, Michael Anderson at 330-714-3739. The company is expected to be in the area for at least two weeks completing the project.
