After receiving a check for back taxes, the City of Ardmore turned the water back on at the Hampton Inn today.


Ardmore City Manager Dan Parrott said he had received confirmation shortly before 5 p.m. the owner of the Hampton Inn had wired the more than $53,180 in back occupancy tax the motel owed the city.


“We’re turning the water back on,” Parrott said.


The city cut the motel’s water supply Thursday after repeated efforts to collect the back taxes were unsuccessful.
