Residents in the City of Newburgh may experience a disruption to some emergency phone and email services due to what officials say is a “cybersecurity incident.”
Officials released a statement overnight saying the incident may have impacted phone and email systems for police and fire services, resulting in a delayed delivery of messages and response times. Calls to 911 are fully functional.
The city is also unable to accept or process payments for property, taxes, water, sewer, sanitation, permit fees, or parking tickets as a result and the city has retained outside IT experts who are working “around the clock” to restore operations, according to officials.
The city plans to share updates on their website and social media pages.
City Hall and 123 Grand St. are closed to the public until further notice.
