City grants partial relief for unpaid water bill

A Meridian landlord was granted partial relief by the Meridian City Council on Tuesday for an unpaid water bill that city officials said one of her tenants ran up with the city.
Armster Young, who, along with her husband, owns rental property in Meridian, will have to pay about $135 in unpaid water usage at their 1623 16th Ave. duplex.
Young's son, Jeffrey Andrews, said he was not happy with the city council's decision. Andrews said he thought the city should pay for the entire $295 bill.
Tuesday's vote came more than a year after one of Young's tenants apparently started running up a water bill with the city. Someone also apparently broke a lock the city placed on the water meter to prevent water usage.
The Young family said they didn't know about the problem and were never notified by the city. City officials agreed that they had not contacted the Youngs about the problem.
The bill for unpaid water eventually rose to $295 and Armster Young requested relief. The city denied the request, opting instead to pay for about half of the bill.
