Tensions between (Dent County, MO) county officials and CenturyLink are reaching a boiling point. Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles reported frustration both Thursday, and again Monday concerning billing mistakes, which he says are shorting the county's 911 fund, and a lack of communication the county has received concerning the sheriff office's 911 system.
"CenturyLink is probably the most frustrating vendor we have to deal with," Skiles said Monday. "The local people here are great, but there is a problem at the higher levels of the business offices."
