ABC 12 – WJRT – Flint, MI

Tenants living at the Glen Acres Estates in Flint were blindsided when they received eviction notices stating that they had 24 hours to vacate their homes.

The reason for the notices traces back to an unpaid water bill of $200,000 that the apartment management company has accrued.

It is illegal in the city of Flint to operate an apartment complex with no running water, so the residents were told they had to leave.

The problem is that with no other options given, many of the tenants have no idea where they will go on such short notice.

It's hard to believe that the owners could let their water bill go unpaid for that long, and then let their residents be evicted!  Where was their rent money going if it wasn't being applied to the expenses of the apartment?
