We have heard that residents are getting phone calls with the caller ID displaying ComEd. An automated message says you have an hour to pay your bill or have your electricity turned off. As a reminder, the City of St. Charles operates its own electric utility services. ComEd does not provide electric services to our residents. Also, the City will not call to demand immediate payment. Please share this information and report any suspicious calls to the Police Department 630.377.4435.
