ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) — Residents at an Abilene apartment complex have been without water because management hasn’t paid the bill in three months, according to the city.
Residents at the Warwick Apartments on Arrowhead Drive in Abilene say their water was shut off Monday afternoon after management didn’t pay the bill.
The water service was temporarily restored early Tuesday evening, but Abilene Mayor Anthony Williams tells BigCountryHomepage.com that he’s not sure how long it will be on.
Water service is included with rent payments at the complex, according to residents, leaving management to transfer that payment to the City of Abilene.
The City of Abilene Water Utilities office issued the following statement regarding the water outage:
The City of Abilene has received a number of calls from residents of the Warwick Apartment Complex regarding a water outage. The water outage is the result of a water shut off due to an extended period of delinquency by the apartment management. Residents should contact their property management company regarding this matter.
Residents at the complex say management was present in the office Monday, but no one was there Tuesday to deal with their complaints.
The Abilene Police Department and Walmart reportedly delivered bottled water to the complex Tuesday, according to residents.
