Message to GCUD Customers Concerning Covid-19 Virus
The health and safety of our workforce and our customers is our top priority as the impact of the Covid-19 virus continues to be felt around the world. Gibson County Utility District remains committed to providing highly responsive service to our customers. Safeguarding the health of our employees is the first step in maintaining our operations and meeting the needs of the community we serve.
Safety is number one at GCUD! Safety related calls will be handled per our normal operating procedures. However, we ask for all customers to cooperate and to let us know if any individual within the home or business is sick, so that our personnel can be prepared when responding to the call. Currently our office lobby is closed but our drive-thru window will remain open. We have many other payments options available, such as:
Bank Draft – signup on online at www.gibsoncountygas.com
Credit Card payment- over the phone at 731-855-1441 or direct at 877-406-4405 or at www.gibsoncountygas.com
Drop Box Payments (limited locations, due to Covid-19)
Online Payments at www.gibsoncountygas.com
We will continue to follow the guidance and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as state and local governmental agencies. As the situation continues to evolve, we will revise plans and make the necessary decisions to ensure the safety and health of our workforce while trying to minimize the disruption for our customers.
At this time, we have the following measures in place, so that we can focus on our core mission to provide safe and reliable natural gas service:
• Suspend and reschedule appliance installs
• Suspend meter change-out program
• Test and ensure our capabilities to continue operations remotely
• Restrict travel
• Cancel training classes and meetings
These changes are not made lightly, and we recognize how these temporary modifications in operations could impact families. We will work through this together, and we ask for your patience.
If additional limitations or restrictions are mandated by federal or state authorities, we will comply with all guidelines and restrictions while trying to minimize the impact to customers. We will continue to monitor this situation daily and provide updates as quickly as possible.
