It had been claimed that the developer of the estates which include College Park and surrounding areas, owed €4,000 from an outstanding electricity bill.
The developer has since gone into liquidation.
Letterkenny Town Mayor Gerry McMonagle says he has been told by the ESB that they will not cut of the electricity on November 21st next.
However he denied the residents will have to pick up the tab.
In fact Cllr McMonagle said the town council must step up to the plate and take some responsibility for the bill.
“It is my belief the council should pay the bill and look at as they enter into discussions going forward,” he said.
“After the initial letter they (the ESB) have copped themselves on and we can now sort this out,” he said.Tags:
