Reminder:  Campello Keith has started and will continue to be inspecting all the oil tanks of residents that they service in the next few weeks. We are being  pro-active in identifying any tanks that may possibly have any leaks. They may be taking part of the cover off your tank to inspect it, but they will replace it. We appreciate their cooperation in this matter! For those residents that use any other oil company, please ask them to inspect your tanks as they are not supposed to deliver fuel to a tank that is leaking.
