WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- Walking into Mirisa Williams' apartment, you can see the problem and smell the problem. Raw sewage covers the floor of every single room.

"I've got three kids and all of them is under the age of seven years old," Williams said. "Who wants to stay in a house with sewer flowing through all your house. That's not right."

Williams lives at Rolling Hills apartments in Winston-Salem, where FOX8 has previously covered issues such as mold and bed bugs.

Williams said the problem has persisted for four days, but management refuses to move her to another unit.

Tuesday, the City of Winston-Salem got involved.

Councilman Derwin Montgomery said he was driving through Rolling Hills, when residents flagged him down to show him the sewage issues. Shortly after, city inspectors arrived and Montgomery says Williams will be moving out immediately.

"The city is now going to use emergency relocation and move the individuals out of this unit," he said. "And then will require the actual owners to repay the city back for those costs."

Montgomery said Aspen Companies Management, out of New Jersey, oversees the property.

Management on-site declined to comment to FOX8.
