An equipment problem knocked out telephone service at Binghamton City Hall for a few hours.

The trouble prevented incoming and outgoing calls to city offices on Tuesday morning.

City Hall spokesman Kyle Seeley says the problem was noticed around 9 a.m.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Seeley said people who needed to contact City Hall could do so by email.

Shortly after 11 a.m., Seeley said the phones were “up and running” but some additional work would be done to “repair a few issues.”

Seeley said an electrical brownout overnight apparently damaged a board in the telephone system in the basement of City Hall.

Phone service was gradually restored to city offices as the system was rebooted. A replacement board was ordered and was expected to be installed on Wednesday.
