Power Surge is Suspected Cause of Phone Issues at City Hall

Posted on July 13, 2020

A string of strong thunderstorms over the weekend is the suspected cause of phone and online access issues at Madeira Beach City Hall today. Currently, some phones are not working, and some computer work stations have been knocked offline.

Callers are directed to push “0” to connect to the receptionist if a call to a specific extension does do not go through. A replacement part has been ordered and should be installed on Tuesday, bringing all phone extensions and network connections back online by the close of business that day.

Due to the network interruption, tonight’s Planning Commission meeting will not be broadcast on the city’s website, however, it is expected to be available on Spectrum Ch. 640 to viewers who live within the City of Madeira Beach zip code. The Planning Commission meeting will be recorded and uploaded for viewing on the city website on Tuesday.
