ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta water officials have denied extra time
for Morris Brown College to pay its past-due $214,000 water bill.
Atlanta Watershed Management spokeswoman Jennifer Carlile says
the college sought a 30-day extension to pay, but the bill must be
paid on Tuesday or the water service will be shut off.
With 160 students this semester, the college had only $35,000
earmarked for the water bill after an art auction Saturday.
Interim president Stanley Pritchett says the college hopes to
have a plan to present to the city on Monday. It's unclear when
water service would be cut off.
