A friendly reminder: Please use your vehicle when using our drive-thru window at our business office, rather than walking up to the window in the driving lane. This is for your safety, as other drivers may not be expecting a pedestrian standing in the drive-thru lane, and we would hate for anyone to get hurt. Thank you!
Employees here at Hastings Utilities are proud to have donated 227 pounds of food to the Hastings Museum for the Tri-City Food Fight! Instead of competing against the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island and The Archway in Kearney, this year they are working together with a collective goal of bringing two tons of food to local food pantries.

We've been made aware of scam calls coming to our customers. The scammers are threatening to shut off customers' utilities within 30-40 minutes unless they agree to be transferred to a billing department for payment. We do not operate in this manner. If you believe you are being contacted by a scammer, hang up and dial our utilities department back at 402-463-1371. Please note that scammers can disguise their caller ID to look like our number, but when you call back at our number they cannot intercept the call.
