CLINTON—Due to the switchover of a main router for a new telephone system, business for offices in the Anderson County Courthouse will be temporarily disrupted on Tuesday, January 6.
The switchover will affect all telephones and computer lnternet access in the Courthouse for about 15 minutes beginning at noon Tuesday, according to BCTI, the company that is installing the new Voiceover lnternet Protocol system. However, government offices are making plans for an hour to give all operating systems time to re-boot.
Also, the switchover temporarily will impact phone service, but not lnternet access, at the Jolley Building that is next to the Courthouse. But the county’s E-911 Communications Center will not be affected.
Some county offices may close from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday during the switchover. Other offices may stay open, but will be limited in the business they can conduct during the process.
“Anderson County’s elected officials and department heads ask for citizens’ patience and understanding if citizens come to the Courthouse Tuesday during the lunch hour,” a press release said.
