KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Residents of a Kissimmee motel have been dealing with brown water pouring out of the tap since Hurricane Irma, and complain that management has not done anything to remedy the situation.
When Michael Boneifer turns on his bathroom faucet at Friendly Village Inn, brown water spills into the sink.

“That’s how it comes out,” he said. “(It’s) horrible, nasty.”
He and other residents say they’ve been dealing with the dirty water for months and when they complain to management nothing ever changes.
“(The manager) tells us if we don’t like it, we can move out,” Boneifer said.
For him, moving out of the motel isn’t a possibility.
“Unfortunately, this is all I can afford right now,” he said.
No one answered the door at the motel’s front office when Channel 9 went looking for comment on the dirty water accusations.
WFTV contacted the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which oversees the state’s motels, but did not immediately receive a response on the situation at Friendly Village Inn.
