ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) - The phone lines are down...again.

For the past four years, the Ector County Courthouse has experienced problems with their phone systems and the community is not happy.

Debbie Nuñez says it is a real hassle having the lines dead. She has been calling for the last two weeks and said it is just frustrating, especially not knowing what's going on.

This time the lines have been down for more than three weeks.

For the past several years the lines have been known to be in out this is why the judge and the commissioners have a short and long-term plan.

Commissioners are hopeful that by next week they will have a plan where they can have some phones at the courthouse

The long-term plan is to voice over in the protocol and it will be a state of the art good system but that may take up to 60 to 90 days to implement.

On Monday the commissioners will have their meeting to discuss other possible solutions.
