Apartments above Public Square restaurant condemned

Two apartments directly above a restaurant on Public Square in downtown Watertown have been condemned.

The Watertown Daily Times reports the city made the decision after officials found "cockroaches, garbage and broken utilities" in and around the two units above the Crystal Restaurant. The units were first inspected and then sprayed for insects.
 
The eatery was not condemned but it was closed this past weekend, with a sign on the front door stating it would reopen for business today.
 
The owner of the apartments, Ricky Frazer, meanwhile, told the Times there were eight "vagrants" living there who refused to leave. Frazer is now on the hook to pay for the cleaning and exterminating services, which has an estimated cost of $12,000 to $14,000.
 
No word on when or if the units will be cleared to be rented again.
