Phone Numbers for Local Utilities

Tenant Responsibility

Tenants must apply to utility companies on their own for electrical, fuel oil (if tenant pays for his/her oil heat), telephone, and cable services if desired. It generally takes several days from the time of application before service starts. Utility companies may require a deposit prior to servicing the premises.
