City Officials Condemn Apartment Buildings Without Water
Some Flint residents are being forced to find a new place to live after city officials condemned two apartment buildings because there is no running water.
According to NBC 25, residents of Glen Acres were told they had to leave by today (Wednesday). Condemnation notices were posted at the properties saying they were unfit for occupancy. Tenants in the two other Glen Acres buildings that have water will be allowed to stay.
A spokesperson for the property management company says the owners have a payment schedule for the water bill at the two buildings with water. However, she also said that copper pipe thefts have led to large water spills and charges of more than $150,000.
