FLORESVILLE -- The city of Floresville is without electronic services after a power outage around 8 a.m. today knocked out the city’s Internet America connection.
Constituent Liaison Sherry Pollok advises that phone service was restored at approximately 10:15 a.m., but all other electronic services at City Hall are out. This includes email, electronic payments, and more. Payments by check or cash can be processed and handwritten receipts issued, she said; however, no payments by credit or debit card can be processed at this time.
Floresville Electric Light & Power System’s General Manager David McMillan confirmed a brief power outage was caused by a squirrel in a transformer at Finders Keepers in downtown Floresville.
“The power ‘blinked’ and came back on,” McMillan said. “We’ve had no other problems reported.
When the city’s Internet connection is restored, ancillary services will be available.
Updates will be provided as information becomes available, Pollok said.
If urgent assistance is needed, contact Pollok at 830-391-2152 or Fonda Kellner at 830-391-1836.
