EarthLink Phone System Problems Affect City Hall Incoming Calls

The City of Marion's normal business operations are being affected due to an apparent nationwide issue with EarthLink, the phone server the City of Marion utilizes. The problem was noticed early this morning when some city employees were notified that incoming calls were not going through and the callers were getting a busy signal. If one makes a call into City Hall's main line, 765-662-9931, they will receive a busy signal, or an automated response from EarthLink saying the "call cannot be completed as dialed, as the called party is busy."
