Officials from Morris Brown College met with city administrators after water service was shut off to the historically black college until the school pays its $380,000 water bill.
Acting President Stanley Pritchett said in a statement Monday that the school has requested more meetings with city officials to resolve the issue before classes resume on Jan. 9.
On Sunday, the school e-mailed more than 7,000 former students seeking donations. Morris Brown needs $1.5 million to pay bills and other operating costs.
Meanwhile, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that a bank representing investors who purchased bonds to construct a building on the Morris Brown campus is foreclosing on the property, saying the school defaulted on a $13.1 million debt. A foreclosure sale is scheduled for Jan. 6.
