One Ring Scams
The most current alerts we have received from the Attorney General is a “One Ring Scam”. This is another way individuals are attempting to take money from your pockets. These calls can cost you $20.00 or more! Here’s how it works.
You receive one ring on your home or cellular phone. You don’t recognize the number so you call it back. When you do, the number is routed to an international number that authorizes a charge of up to $20.00 dollars, with an additional $9.00 per minute charge. The number you call back is usually a recording or advertisement designed to keep you on the phone, thus incurring more minutes.
Remember “Curiosity Killed the Cat”. To avoid this from happening to you, don’t call the number back. If someone really needs to get a hold of you they will call back.
The Orange Village Police Department has more information on fraud
In an ongoing effort to keep all Orange Village resident's safe, our administration and safety forces have collaborated to produce the
Emergency Preparedness Checklist
We hope that each household will take a moment to ensure they are familiar with this
checklist and that every resident of our village takes advantage of the resources we proudly offer.
Please “Help Us To Help You” and take the pledge to be prepared.

Water Meter Upgrades
Cleveland Water’s Clear Reads Project is coming to Orange Village in October. Clear Reads is Cleveland Water’s Project to install automated meter reading (AMR) technology throughout its service area. Cleveland Water’s Clear Reads Project delivers better customer service by providing accurate bills based on actual consumption, access to water usage information, and overall improved efficiency.
Since your water meter is most likely located inside your home, you will need to schedule an appointment for your installation. When it is time to schedule your appointment, you will receive a letter from the Clear Reads Project with all the relevant details. Evening and weekend appointments are available. When you schedule your appointment, the Clear Reads installation team will give you a two hour window, and the actual installation takes about one hour to complete.
