The Village of Merrillan wants to remind residents of reporting options during inclement weather that results in power outages or other major issues. Hopefully this Winter storm will spare us, but in the meantime if an issue comes up please make reports on our website listed below. Wet, heavy snow, along with the wind can easily take power out not just within the Village but on lines that lead into the Village from miles away that connect us to the grid. This type of weather can easily result in long restoration times.
If you know of someone who does not have Internet access you can provide the following phone number for them to call and leave a message to report power outages as well, but please only use the number for those without online access and only for power outages.
If you have an actual emergency please call 911 (ex. fire, threat to life/property, etc) or the Sheriff’s Office 715-284-5357.
As always, any questions, please reach out. Be safe and weather-aware.
