CABOT, AR- A notice posted on the doors of tenants at the Alpine Village apartment gave them less than 24 hours to get out.

The notices are from the City of Cabot and say the apartments are unsafe and not up to city ordinance code.

We met Donald McDaniel at a sonic where he was killing time before he was going to stay the night at his place of employment.

He said he came home for lunch at the apartments when he saw the notices taped to every door.

Tenants were given until 6PM to be out and were threatened with arrest if they did not comply.

McDaniel said this is not the way management for the apartments should have handled the situation.

"Well I think they're very unprofessional," he said. "To me the landlord, or whoever, someone knew we were going to be out of there and they should have warned us before hand."

McDaniel said he worries about his neighbors, the ones who don't have anywhere to go, and what they will do in the mean time.

The tenants were not given a time frame for how long it will take the apartments to meet codes and open once again.

McDaniel said they were told they can come back at 6 AM Saturday to get any personal items.
