WEST CHESTER TWP. - Water will not be shut off this week at an apartment complex here off Ohio 747 that had an outstanding water bill of more than $75,000.
James A. Parrott, director of Butler County Environmental Services, said Monday the water will remain on at Wyndtree Rental Community on Smith Road because the county has received a $10,000 payment from the complex's owners, Affiniti Management LLC of Columbus.
Affiniti officials have pledged to pay the rest of their bill, which was $75,463 last week, by Nov. 15, Mr. Parrott said.
County officials had threatened to shut off the water at the complex - for the second month in a row - because of the outstanding bill.
Affiniti officials last week blamed their financial woes on a construction contractor who defaulted as the complex was being built in 2000. The complex has 236 people living in 297 units and a tax-credit program for low-income residents.
