Renton apartments withdraw eviction notices

RENTON, Wash. -- Property managers have withdrawn their eviction notices for dozens of residents at two Renton apartment complexes.

Now families can stay put at the Renton Woods and Grammercy Apartments until further notice.

Advocates of tenants rights got involved after the landlords made moves to evict low-income residents who use Section 8 housing vouchers to help pay the rent.

The landlords told residents they were choosing to opt out of the housing voucher program. But again, those evictions are on hold.
