The Evansville Housing Authority (EHA) says it has given Woodland Park Apartments until Friday at 5:00 p.m. to make good on past-due utility payments owed to CenterPoint Energy.

A letter addressed to Woodland Park Management from EHA says that if the past-due bills aren't paid by Friday, July 16 at 5:00 p.m., EHA will notify voucher holders residing in the complex that they may break their lease immediately without losing their voucher assistance.

The housing authority's declaration comes after CenterPoint Energy announced the possible disconnection of gas and electric services at the apartment complex on Friday.

CenterPoint Energy says it's been trying to work with the complex since 2019 to remedy a "significant past-due amount."

CenterPoint says they want to make it clear they have received some payments from the apartment complex over the past few years, but that a substantial amount remains due.

CenterPoint Energy says that if the outstanding balance isn't paid by the Woodland Park Apartments’ landlord, service at the apartment complex will be subject to disconnection in late August of 2021.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
