Fairway Police Chief Mike Fleming just alerted us that the phones at the police department and city hall there are currently out of service. Fleming said a cut AT&T fiber cable in the vicinity of 119th Street and I-35 had impacted phone service in several areas, including Kansas City, Kan., and Fairway.
“We are here and available, but if you call the police department or city hall directly, no one will be able to answer,” he said.
People can still call 911 if they have emergencies — it’s just the direct line to the police department that isn’t working. Fleming encouraged people who need to take care of business with city hall or the police department to make a “personal appearance” if possible.
