CPU looks forward to another year of service, commitment and improvement

The first day of the new year represents a clean slate and a fresh start—the perfect time to make resolutions and commit ourselves to positive change.

As we enter the fourth year of our “Bright Future” initiative, Clarksdale Public Utilities wishes to remind our customers that we remain committed to excellence and continuous improvement. We see each year as an opportunity to build on our legacy as a trusted provider of utility services, a role we have served in Clarksdale since 1899.

Looking ahead, we plan to stay focused on our “Bright Future” commitments to enhance reliability, innovation and community focus while operating Clarksdale’s utility systems in a safe and responsible manner.

We also want to make doing business with CPU as easy and convenient as possible. As part of that commitment, we are in the process of upgrading CPU’s website and adding features to improve our customers’ online experience.

Whether customers engage with us in person or online, our goal is to ensure that every interaction produces positive results. CPU looks forward to providing excellent service for our customers in 2022, and we wish everyone a safe and happy New Year!
