As of Thursday afternoon, Jan. 11, St. Clair city’s server is back up.

City employees could not access computers and information because the city’s server was down that morning, according to City Administrator Travis Dierker.

The city’s IT contractor was on site to repair the issue. Phone lines were down between 10-10:30 a.m. They were connected to another server linked to a cellphone.

During that time, residents could still drop off payments to city hall where they received a handwritten receipt.

Friday morning, Dierker said the server was back up and running by noon Thursday.
