Colorado Springs Utilities says they have reached an agreement with the owner of Pine Creek Apartments that will keep the utilities from being shut off.
Three hundred residents at the apartment complex were in danger of losing their homes if the utilities weren't paid by May 9.
The statement from Colorado Springs Utilities appears below:
Colorado Springs Utilities has reached an agreement with Resident Management Systems (RMS) that will prevent utility service disconnections at Pine Creek Village Apartments. The April 9 [sic] posting is no longer applicable. We greatly appreciate the patience displayed by tenants throughout this process. As a community-owned utility, we understand this situation has been extremely stressful for tenants and we are pleased that the issue has been resolved.
Utilities says because of customer confidentiality, they will not disclose the details of the agreement.
