After receiving a water shut off notice in Friday's mail, Rising Sun Mayor Travis Marion assumed he was being pranked.
So he took his bill to town hall and asked who was joking.
That joke was on everybody.
Mayor Marion said a computer glitch - specifically a malfunctioning server, generated water shut off notices for most everyone who is provided with water by the Town of Rising Sun.
Town officials also reported that they fielded numerous phone calls and had a line of concerned residents at town hall on Friday morning. This all occurred while town crews were working to repair a water leak in the Summer Hill subdivision.
"We fielded a lot of angry residents," said Mayor Marion.
