Warwick Apartments apologizes for not paying city bill that caused water to be shut off



Warwick Apartments in Abilene Wednesday paid their outstanding City water bill, according to Abilene City officials. The complex owed over $20,000 to the City, apparently, for not paying the water bill for over 3 months leaving over 100 residents without water. The City shut off the water Monday, but in a humanitarian effort they turned it back on Tuesday.

“It was a City administration decision, but certainly I received some phone calls. I talked to the City Manager,” said Abilene Mayor Anthony Williams.

Warwick Apartments issued a public statement on social media:

“Atlas Residential LLC and The Warwick Apartments staff apologize for any inconvenience that this situation has caused. We assure you that the property staff did their best remedy this situation, and all collected funds are accounted for. Atlas Residential continues to work with property staff , lenders, vendors, and service providers to ensure that services are restored and disruptions do not happen in the future. The economic challenges brought on by COVID 19 pandemic continue to put extreme stress and long term impacts on businesses including multifamily businesses and we are making every effort to overcome these challenges.”
