Johnson County telecommunications provider Foothills announced this week they would be opening account support options for federal employees in its markets that have been affected by the government shutdown. 

“We live and work in the communities we serve, and these are our friends and neighbors impacted by the shutdown, so we want to do our part to help,” said Jarrod Hardin, Foothills Communications Director of Customer Relations, in a statement. “We understand that our customers rely on their Internet, phone and cable service to stay connected to what matters most and we’re going to ensure that they receive the assistance they need during this time.”

Foothills Communications has said it will waive late fees and is offering a “promise to pay” payment plan to customers who call to make arrangements. 

Foothills customers can call, (606) 297-3501, for more information and to set up arrangements.
