City warns of misleading water service solicitations

The Middleton Water & Sewer Utility said some customers may be mislead by water service insurance solicitations received in the mail.

Recipients of the mailings believed the Middleton Water & Sewer Utility was affiliated with the solicitor, HomeServe USA. The utility clarified Friday that it is not connected to any private insurance solicitors and it does not endorse their services.

"We suggest that our customers thoroughly research any company before doing business with them," MWSU said in a statement. "As part of your research, you may want to contact the State of Wisconsin Better Business Bureau."
