The Delaware County government’s telephone voicemail system is broken, and officials aren’t sure when it will be fixed.
The outage affects every office within the county government system, except Emergency Communications and the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch Center, county officials said. All 911 operations are functional and without issues. Temporary processes are being put in place to deal with the outage, such as calling in for jury duty, according to county officials.
The main switchboard for the county, 740-833-2000, is answered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you can’t reach an individual directly, the best way to reach them is by calling the department or office main telephone number, or by emailing employees directly. All county emails can be accessed by using the first initial and last name of the employee or elected official followed by @co.delaware.oh.us. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office can also be reached for non-emergency issues through the 24-hour access telephone number, 740-833-2800.
