Utility Shut-Off Scam Alert

Don't fall for a scam.....a couple of local businesses reported today they had received calls from individuals claiming to represent the utility company. They were warned that unless they made payment within the next 30 minutes, their power would be shut off. The City is the power provider for Saint Peter residents (not Xcel) and we do not make such threatening calls. Notice of shut off for non-payment is done by mail. The two companies contacted the Police Department because they knew better. If you are ever in doubt about a utility bill, please call the City's Finance Department directly at 934-0664.
