Power Outage

During a power outage, citizens can call the main office phone number listed above to leave a message. However, management and crews will be very busy determining the cause and extent of the outage and trying to restore service as quickly as possible. The Power Department will return your call as soon as possible but there may be some delay.

  • Check to see if your circuit breakers have tripped. Are your neighbor's lights on, or is the entire surrounding area out?
  • Turn off any electrical appliances that may have been running, such as a washer, dryer, or space heater. When power is restored it will help prevent overload.
  • If you notice that your neighbor's power comes back on, but yours does not, please call us.
