Brandywine residents: The clock is ticking

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Neighbors at the troubled Brandywine Condominiums in Baton Rouge have until the end of the month to find another place to live.

The owner of the majority of the units at the complex made a Monday 5 p.m. deadline and paid $10,000 to the city-parish to get the water reconnected.

Officials had disconnected the water because of an outstanding sewer bill. The bill was more than $100,000 and is for the entire complex. Residents of the complex pay rent, and part of that money is used to pay condo association fees which are meant for utility payments.

The leader of the condo association says the group will not be able to sustain itself and will have to close Brandywine by the end of the month.
