Lights out in Linton tonight

A planned power outage has been announced for tonight in the city of Linton in Greene County.

The Linton Police Department reports that various locations within the town will experience a power outage at about midnight that will last from 15 to 30 minutes. The city’s electricity department will be conducting maintenance.

“We were not given any information on the exact problem, just that something was seen and they were making preparations to fix it,” according to a news release from the police department. “If your residence stays off [longer than] this time check out our Facebook page or local online media pages for updates.”

Phone lines are often overwhelmed during power outages, so police ask that people with smart phones and battery-powered devices check for updates posted online, rather than calling police.

However, those who have not had power restored within 30 minutes should call the city police at 812-847-4411 to alert the utility department.
