Remaining Residents In Failing 20-Unit Condo At Risk Of Getting The Boot After Being Belted With $47K+ Overdue Water Bill, Shut-Off Notice

In Warrensville Heights, Ohio, WEWS-TV Channel 5 reports:

  • Owners of the Clarkwood Townhouses #3 in Warrensville Heights were issued a shocking piece of news, their homeowners association is more than $47,000 behind on their water bill.

    To make matter worse, the Cleveland Division of Water sent them a notice that their water is scheduled to be turned-off on Aug. 10, if payment arrangements aren't made soon.

  • Townhouse owners like Gloria Davis told NewsChannel5, many will lose their homes if water service is interrupted. "If the water is shut-off here, that would become a medical emergency crisis," said Davis. "We have seniors living here, we have children living here."

    Davis and other tenants said they were not aware their association water wasn't being paid over the past three years, and blame their former management company, and association board for the massive total.

    The huge water bill was also caused by a growing number of association members not paying their monthly dues, and going bankrupt. NewsChannel5 confirmed 12 of the 20 units on the property are now vacant, many of the unoccupied units are in foreclosure.
