CEDAR RAPIDS - The check is in the bank. That's what the Cedar Rapids city Treasurer's office says about a check from Kronos Hotels.

Last week KCRG TV9 uncovered the city administrator's office sent a letter to Kronos Hotels, who owns the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

In the letter, the city asked Kronos to pay them nearly $68,000 in unpaid parking and utilities fees.

Kronos Hotels told KCRG TV9 that the check was in the mail.

Wednesday, an attorney for Kronos told TV9 they sent the check, but then had it stopped so they could instead hand deliver the check.

Cedar Rapids city manager Jim Prosser told TV9 he is glad the payment came through.
