(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Mower County won't be taking control of Oak Park Mall.

The Mower County Auditor-Treasurer's Office confirmed it has received a cashier's check paying off the more than $378,000 in unpaid taxes, interest and penalties.

Mall ownership had until Friday to pay the money or Mower County would take control of the mall.

As we've reported, the mall also owes Austin Utilities $117,000 in utility bills. We're still working to find out if that's been taken care of.
