Taft apartment complex evictions halted by state

Posted: Updated:
TAFT -

Residents at the Rincon Apartments were given five day eviction notices in Taft earlier this week. 

"I don't want to leave, that's a job, a job and a half," said Marie Woody.

Within hours, phone calls were made to FEMA, Taft city leaders, Congressman Farenthold's office and State Representative Lozano's office.

Late today the State Department of Housing and Consumer affairs sent a letter to all the parties involved that the evictions were illegal because no specific reason was given by the apartment complex owner.

"It's overwhelming, its amazing how one phone call brought all these people together," said Veronica Gonzales.

According to the city of Taft only five units have mold and leaking roofs due to Harvey. There are a total of 36 units here.

The owner tried to have all of the apartments condemned but the city of Taft said no way.  We looked at several units that had no damage at all.

We tried to talk to the complex manager but she wouldn't answer her door.  Meanwhile Taft City Manager Denise Hitt is working hard on solutions

"There's no reason these units cant be fixed, we're talking shingles and sheetrock and most of these can be fixed," said Hitt.
