City phone lines and computer networks are back in service after a five-hour outage, officials confirmed.

A contractor excavating outside Augusta Municipal Building early Tuesday knocked out power to the city’s data center, causing the outage, interim deputy administrator Steve Cassell said.

Contractor should be billed

Contractor should be billed for all lost work hours with explanation of why it takes 4 to 5 hours to restore service to phones and computers.

Then present a written detailed restoration procedure before any activity can continue.

Where is the oversight?

Demolition

The commission voted to halt construction but to continue demolition. This contractor must have gotten a little too heavy handed with his sledge hammer!
