Ok, that headline maybe a little misleading. But it was true last Wednesday when, in the midst of an average council meeting, suddenly a ring came from under the council’s desk.
“Apparently, if you want to call City Hall, it rings the old landlines under our desks in the council chambers,” noted Councilman Mark Clayton on Facebook.
It seems no one really uses this landline anymore, likely a relic from a simpler technological time.
That didn’t stop Preston Hollow resident and representative Jennifer Staubach Gates from jumping into action, who spent several minutes on the phone with the caller, taking notes on his request. “…She dutifully took his information and got it to the proper department. Great work, Jennifer,” Clayton noted.
