OPALCO OFFICES OPEN FOR BUSINESS AS USUAL

OPALCO offices are open for business today, Friday 2/12/16. All OPALCO offices were closed yesterday following a series of incidents that threatened the safety and security of OPALCO employees. The Sheriff’s office and the FBI are investigating the incidents and report a steady flow of valuable information coming from the community. OPALCO appreciates the cooperation of our membership and encourages anyone with information to come forward.

“We will not tolerate threats or acts of violence or vandalism,” said Foster Hildreth, General Manager. “This is about the lives and well-being of the people who work hard every day to serve our membership with reliable power and excellent customer care. I’m proud of our team for standing tall in the face of adversity, and measures are being taken to ensure their safety in the workplace.”

San Juan County Sheriff Ron Krebs is asking that anyone with information call 911 or the anonymous tip line at 360-370-7629.

Please note, OPALCO’s offices will be closed on Monday, February 15th in honor of President’s Day.
