An outage in the Metronet phone system is affecting some of the 10 digital phone lines at Putnam County Dispatch.
While 911 emergency calls are not affected, the non-emergency number (653-5115) was not working as of early Tuesday afternoon.
Dispatch has one line from a different service provider -- (765) 795-4791 -- that is currently working. The public may use this number to reach dispatch for non-emergency calls.
This story will be updated when the lines are operational or the situation changes in any way.
