Reminders for Icy Weather in Bardstown
- There is No Need to Call to Report Electric Outages
With our advanced electric meters, we are aware of electric outages the moment they occur. Therefore, it is not necessary that a customer calls in to alert us. Instead, check out our outage map that will be updated regularly with known outages
- Please Call City Hall to Report Damage
If you have specific information you would like to notify us about (such as a downed power line, arcing/sparking lines or equipment, or a “bang” of a blown transformer fuse) please do call us at City Hall (502) 348-5947.
- Please Be Patient
While the ice storm is impacting our system, our electric crews will only respond to immediate emergencies such as a downed line in the road or on a structure or vehicle. We will not be able to quickly repair problems due to the precipitation continuing to fall and cause further issues and damage to the system. Once the precipitation ceases, we will then be able to troubleshoot and make repairs. If individual service lines are damaged, and this causes damage to any part of a customer’s electric service on their residence (such as the meter base, conduit riser out of meter base, or the attachment point of the electric lines on the residence) it is the responsibility of the owner to make repairs to these first before the electric crew will repair and/or reconnect the service lines.
- Please Don’t Park on the Street
We’re asking everyone if at all possible, to please park in your driveway, and not on the street. If you must park on the street, please park on one side only with neighbors so salt and plow trucks can get through. This is especially important on narrow streets like N. First, Fourth, O’Finn, etc. so that room for emergency vehicles can be cleared. Ice is dangerous so thinking ahead the night before will be very important.
