New Alert System
May 25, 2018
Depending on when you visited our new website lately, you might've noticed an orange bar across the top of the pages! This orange bar is our all new community alert system. When the need arises, we'll use this system to bring your attention to information of all kinds, such as boil water orders, road closures and other things of that nature. This message system is not intended to replace emergency alert systems such as storm sirens or 911 and you should not rely solely on this system for your emergency info! Customers can also sign up for our newsletter and receive these important messages via email. We implemented this simply to act as another avenue through which we can make our community aware of important things going on in the area!
