Neighborhood's Water Shut Off | KOHD: "The City says it's never had to turn off an entire private subdivision's water. There were about 40 other homes in the neighborhood, who like Kasowski, did not have water for about two hours.
In this area off of Fifth and Cheyenne, homes are on a master water meter. They pay a billing company every month which then sends money back to the Homeowners Association to pay the City.
Chris Doty the Redmond Public Works Director says
'In this case the subdivision had some difficulty in making payments over the past nine months or so. They had been put on shut off notice before and have always made payments prior to shut off, this time they failed to do that so they were subsequently shut off.'
Neighbors we talked to say they've paid their bill. The Homeowners Association, Northwest Community Property Management declined to comment on the reason for lack of payment."
It is just unacceptable to place a whole neighborhood's water supply at the mercy of a volunteer board of directors and whatever property manager falls through the transom.
