Water woes end for Lakeview Estates residents
Placeholder Image

 Residents in the Lakeview Estates community will continue to get water from the county. According to a press release issued on Friday, PoyntSource Solutions made a $51,692 payment to Rockdale Water Resources to cover its past due bill.

 A hearing between the county and PoyntSource Solutions for Wednesday, April 29 has been cancelled.

 The 3,000 plus residents in the Lakeview Estates trailer park have been in limbo since March after the county said it would stop providing water to PoyntSource, who supplies water to the community. PoyntSource Solutions, Inc. purchases the water from RWR to supplement its private water supply system that serves the Lakeview Estates community. According to county officials, PoyntSource owed the county $51,692 in past due water bills.

 Last month, the county notified residents it would shut off service to the community on April 9 if the bill was not paid by the close of business on April 8.

However, due to scheduling conflict in the court, officials decided to wait to take action on interrupting water service to PoyntSource Solutions, Inc. until after a hearing that was set for Monday, April 13.

 That hearing was subsequently rescheduled to yesterday because PoyntSource’s CEO Libby Poynter was admitted to the hospital, according to the court.  

 The hearing was rescheduled for a third time to April 29, but has now been cancelled because the company made a payment.
