Electric service disconnections resume April 15
Stoughton Utilities is advising electric and water customers who are behind on their bills to immediately pay any delinquent balances, or enter into a deferred payment agreement with the utility to avoid service disconnection.
Wisconsin’s Winter Emergency Period, often referred to as the moratorium on residential service disconnection, ends April 15. After that date, utilities statewide may begin to disconnect service to customers who are past due on payment of their electric bills for any period of time, including the winter months. Stoughton Utilities will disconnect all accounts with severely delinquent balances on April 19 ...

Don't Fall Victim to Utility Scams
Recently, several businesses in Stoughton were targeted with a common utility scam. Scammers frequently take advantage of worried utility customers using the threat of disconnection to demand immediate payment. There are a few things you can keep in mind to avoid being a victim. Stoughton Utilities will never call you and demand immediate payment over the phone, nor will we ever accept payment while at your home or business. We will never require payment by prepaid debit card (such as Green Dot, MoneyPak, or prepaid gift cards), or by wire transfer services such as Western Union.
In all cases except those where a very serious safety hazard exists, Stoughton Utilities will contact you by mail at least 10 days prior to any scheduled disconnection. If a serious safety hazard exists, we will not require or accept payment to cancel the disconnection.
If you receive a suspicious call, hang up and call our office or the Stoughton Police Department to determine if it was a SU employee. If anyone claiming to be a SU employee visits your home or business, request to see their utility ID card and contact our office if you question the authenticity. If anyone claiming to offer bill payment assistance visits your home, close the door and immediately contact the Stoughton Police Department ...
Keep your fire hydrants clear
Help protect your home and neighborhood by clearing around fire hydrants after every snowfall.
Blocked hydrants mean slower response to extinguishing fires which can result in catastrophic consequences if fire fighters have to spend time locating a buried hydrant and / or clear snow away from it, especially if the snow is heavily compacted from snow plowing.
If you have a fire hydrant adjacent to your home or business, please clear all the snow at least three feet around it on all sides after each and every snowfall ...
