Allegan Co. phone crews hope to have everyone back online in next 2 weeks
ALLEGAN, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Phone crews in Allegan County hope to have everyone's phone services back up and running within the next two weeks.
Last month, lighting struck the Allgan County Services center, frying the phone systems.
More than 675 phones went offline, and more than 200 of them still have not gotten service back.
Last month, the Allgean County Board of Commissioners approved $500,000 to be spent on building a stronger phone system in case lighting strikes again.
An Allegan County official says that county dispatch ran a few test calls of their 9-1-1 system Tuesday morning, and that no one is impacted with emergency calls as a result of the outage.
