DA’s Phones Shut Off Over Unpaid Bill

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) – An unpaid phone bill briefly cut off service to a northeastern Pennsylvania district attorney's office and the county visitors center.

The unpaid bill was paid Wednesday and service was turned back on in the Lackawanna County visitors center. But it took until Thursday to get the phones working again in the district attorney's office.

Lackawanna County officials say the $646.74 bill was simply overlooked.

But XO Communications officials tell The Times-Tribune of Scranton the bill was three months in arrears when services were cut off Tuesday.
