Most of the phone numbers at Union City City Hall are not working, so officials are urging residents to call the main number or the non-emergency police line for inquiries.

“Please be advised that telephone service to City Hall is currently being worked on. No emergency numbers to the Union City Police Department are impacted,” a message posted on the city’s official website at 1 p.m. says.

“The main number, 201-348-5700, is operational, as well as the Police Department non-emergency line at 201-865-1111.”

The direct lines to the building department, city clerk, health department, etc., are not working, but can still be reached through the main number.

A spokeswoman for PSE&G initially said that downed power lines on New York Avenue were the likely cause of the problem, but shortly thereafter indicated it was a problem with Verizon.

A spokesman for Verizon could not be immediately reached for comment.
