Dove Season

Dove season is approaching this weekend and we want to remind all hunters that shooting at power lines is always a bad idea. Projectiles from gunfire can damage power lines and fiber optic lines which may cause thousands of dollars in damage. Damaged lines are inconvenient, expensive, and dangerous for those in the surrounding area. People that damage Power Commission lines and other property are responsible for the full cost of the repairs.

Please follow our safety tips for hunting around utility lines:

  1. Keep clear of electrical equipment
  2. Know where overhead lines are located on the property you hunt
  3. NEVER shoot towards power lines, fiber optic lines, insulators, or other electrical equipment
  4. Do not place or hang decoys on power lines or other electrical equipment

Happy Hunting!

unitedhealthcare ucard information

UnitedHealthcare’s Medicare Advantage UCard program began in January 2023. Their website lists one of the benefits of the UCard is having the ability to pay eligible utility bills.

Crisp County Power Commission can process payments from cards associated with the VISA, Mastercard, or American Express networks. The UCard is not associated with one of those networks.

Customers wanting to pay their Power Commission bill with the UCard must refer to one of the UCard’s third-party payment processing vendors such as Walmart. Please note that payments made through third-party payment processors may take up to 14 days to be received by the Power Commission. Power Commission customers remain responsible for paying their bill in full before the cut off date on the bill or may be subject to disconnection.
