Iowa Utilities Board Updates

 In connection with the May 27, 2020, expiration of Governor Kim Reynolds’ proclamation that eases restrictions and permits the reopening of some businesses, the Iowa Utilities board (IUB) today issued an order that establishes requirements that Iowa utilities must follow before they can resume disconnections of customers’ utility service.   https://iub.iowa.gov/press-release/2020-05-01/iub-issues-order-directing-phase-utility-service-disconnections 

BEware of Utility Scams during COVID-19

 While the current COVID-19 crisis has brought out the best in people, the situation has also brought out the worst in some people. We are hearing some disturbing reports of utility scams throughout the state. If you are called by someone offering help that's too good to be true, hang up and call the utility directly. Use an Internet search to find the phone number for your utility provider; do not rely on a phone number given to you by the caller. For more tips and information, visit the Iowa Utilities Board's website at https://iub.iowa.gov/…/beware-utility-scams-during-covid-19…
