 DeFuniak Springs – On Tuesday, November 15th, Walton County Government and Constitutional Offices will be upgrading their phone service and moving to a new phone service provider.  These changes will affect all County governmental offices with the exception of the following:

  • Walton County Sheriff’s Office
  • Walton County Extension Office
  • Walton County School Board
  • Walton County Health Department
  • Walton County Fairgrounds
  • Walton County Council on Ageing
  • State Attorney’s Office
  • Department of Juvenile Justice
  • South Walton Fire District
  • South Walton Mosquito Control
  • City of DeFuniak
  • City of Freeport
  • City of Paxton

The Walton County Public Defender’s Office and Guardian Ad Litem will be affected on Wednesday, November 16th.

This change is being made as the county moves its phone services from CenturyLink to Information Transport Solutions, Inc (ITS).  ITS recently took over the internet services for the County as the broadband services were upgraded and a fiber optic network was run throughout the County to governmental offices.

What this means to the public:

Short Term Impacts

  • Intermittent outages or service may be limited beginning at 8:00am on Tuesday, November 15th, and will last until 5:00pm that evening for all offices listed below with the exception of the Public Defender’s office and Guardian Ad Litem which will be affected from the same times on Wednesday, November 16th.
  • During this time period, the public is asked to try their call again later in the day as service is upgraded and restored to individual offices.

 Immediate and Permanent Changes

  • As the upgrades occur, previous direct dial County Extensions will no longer be valid for the offices and departments listed below.  Members of the public must dial the main numbers to reach offices, departments or individual employees.
