Phone service cut to county offices

March 12, 2008


Shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday, phone lines to most Douglas County offices, the Douglas County sheriff's main office and all District Court offices failed.

County Administrator Craig Weinaug said technicians were to arrive Tuesday night, and it was hoped the problem could be repaired by the start of business this morning.

Phone lines to the 911 Communication Center, the Lawrence Police Department, Douglas County Jail, the Juvenile Detention Center and the Douglas County Building and Zoning Office were not affected and are functioning normally.

Phone services were returned to all affected offices late Tuesday evening.
