SCAMS ARE EVERYWHERE! PLEASE BE ADVISED!

If you receive a call asking if you will be home or not, or a call regarding disconnection, PLEASE HANG UP and call the office directly. 

We had a report over the weekend of a member receiving a call, telling them to be home because we were coming. They immediately hung up and called us. Our after-hours phone operator contacted our staff and advised them this was not the case. 

Coronavirus Message From Cooperative

OPERATIONAL UPDATE: 4/06/2020 5 a.m.

Due to State, Federal and CDC guidelines the cooperative offices will remained closed with some employees still working from main office and others working remotely.
