We have received several calls today about a scam involving utility payments. Residents reported a phone call from an unknown number demanding immediate payment over the phone or utilities would be cut off. Wilson Energy never demands payment over the phone. If you receive a call from these scammers, please hang up immediately and do not provide any information. Call Wilson Customer Service at 399-2200 if you have any questions about your utility bill.

Forest Hills Road right now. Again, see and hear how icy the road is, and conditions are getting worse. Most stores and restaurants are closed so stay home if you can.
