Late Sunday night, a cluster of buildings concentrated on the south side of South Quad, including four dorms, lost power for around four hours, according to University spokesman Dennis Brown. Students confirmed Carroll Hall also lost power.“At approximately 10:20 p.m. Sunday, a failed piece of cable led to a power outage in 11 buildings: St. Joseph Hall, Columba Hall, Holy Cross Annex, [the] Rockne [Memorial], Lyons, West Lake Hall, Fisher, Pangborn, Dillon, Alumni and a small portion of Fitzpatrick Engineering,” Brown said. “The failed section of cable was isolated and service restored to the first three facilities by approximately 2 a.m. and the balance of facilities by approximately 2:20 a.m.Brown said there was “no relation” between this power outage and other minor outages this semester or the nearly campus-wide blackout Feb. 27.“Permanent repairs are forthcoming,” he said. “… Once repairs are made, there likely will be a very short, scheduled outage at some point in the future to restore the system to its normal configuration. The timing for that will be communicated to building managers, rectors and others.”Tags: power outage

Furthermore, expanding access to public unit depositors—such as school districts and local governments—is logical, as they are a large source of potential depositors. For the year of 2018, total U.S. state and local governments spent $3.25 trillion and employed roughly 20 million people, according to the Center for Digital Government.Historically, credit unions have focused on public employees joining as members. With the recent rule change, coupled with the increasing size, footprints and advances in technology of FCUs, targeting larger deposits from the actual public unit can be a greater opportunity than marketing membership to its employees. However, many obstacles are still present for FCUs trying to break into the public funds space.
