      Lee County phones nearly back in service

      Department heads are forwarding emails to collection tellers so that they can return phone calls to those who want to make a payment.

      Lee County phone lines are back up and running, but not quite.As of Wednesday, county officials can make outgoing phone calls, but incoming calls can only be routed through the administration building.Workers at the administration building have been swamped all day taking calls and forwarding them to each department. This has been causing a delay because workers with the utilities and garbage collection can only get calls from that building.Department heads are forwarding emails to collection tellers so that they can return phone calls to those who want to make a payment.County officials still do not have an ETA on the full return of phone lines, but are working with service provides to hopefully get the service restored by the end of the week.They are advising anyone who needs to pay their bill to use the website lee.ga.us or to come into the office for immediate service.
