McMinnville officials have temporarily turned the water back on at Cotten Apartments. Members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen unanimously agreed Tuesday night to allow the water to be restored until Jan. 2, 2015. On that date it will be turned back off, unless the owner of the apartment complex, Evelyn Cotten, takes action to rectify the non-payment situation.The decision was made after Vice Mayor Ben Newman expressed compassion for the plight of residents living at Cotten Apartments who were without water.“It has been brought to my attention there are some apartments, and I don’t know how many apartments there are in this building, but water has been shut off due to non-payment.
