Curry County reports their phone systems are working, except for the voicemail capabilities. If you are trying to reach the county, keep calling until someone picks up; voicemails cannot be retrieved and will not be answered. Coos Curry Electric, who provides IT services to the county, and the phone vendor, DGI, have worked through the night and have made progress on the phone system repairs, albeit slow going due to conversion differences between the antiquated systems.
Due to the phone emergency, the Board will discuss a new phone system at their meeting on Wednesday, November 20th. This past month the Board discussed a phone upgrade, and agreed to budget for the new upgrade in the coming budget. Due to the phone situation, the Board will be discussing moving the project forward this current fiscal year. If approved, the new system is expected to take three months for installation and conversion.
