Phase 1 of the electrical system infrastructure upgrade is currently in progress. Some areas will receive new wires, either overhead or underground and others will receive utility pole replacements.
Rochelle Municipal Utilities wants the community to be aware that there will be RMU utility workers and contract workers in the residential neighborhoods, mostly Monday through Friday during the hours of 7:00 am through 5:00 pm. However, some Saturday work may also take place. Currently, work is being done in the residential area west of N 7th St in the north part of town.
Please remind children to stay away from the equipment. Residents should also be aware that RMU workers may be on their property marking the placement of underground infrastructure and upgrading the system. Residents are asked to please leave the flag markers in their yard until the work is completed. Residents will be able to identify the workers by the RMU name on their trucks and uniforms.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, they can contact the RMU Customer Service Department at 815-562-4155.
