Lytle Electric was here to repair outlets and light fixtures (both inside and in the parking lot) that were not working.
Lazerware is working on Internet at Oblong and Hutsonville locations. Breyanna has recently spoken with John Ireland at Oblong High School and we are having the line tested from the school. Lazerware is requesting the school replace equipment and John asked that we make sure it is not the line before they purchase equipment.
We did have an issue with a patron that resulted in our calling the Police. The patron was walked out.
The elevator broke down again and Midwest Elevator arrived yesterday to fix the problem.
