Oakland County government has phone issues
Oakland County government is starting the work week with a "phone system hardware failure" that has calls to its offices ringing without going to voicemail.
The glitch was announced just before 7 a.m. by Bill Mullan, spokesman for Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson.
The 911 system is still working, and Mullan notes that calls placed during the county's 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. business hours will still be answered by a live human being.
The county is working with its phone vendor to fix the issue, but no time estimate for the fix was offered.
