Measure would Empower Local Officials over Land Lease Communities

May 2nd, 2014

Updating a story MHProNews.com last reported on March 25, 2014 regarding the Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park in Lansing, Michigan condemned because of unsanitary conditions, State Representative Andy Schor introduced Bill 5513 to give local leaders more clout in dealing with problems at manufactured housing communities (MHCs). Lansing city officials knew of sanitation problems at Life O’Riley, according to wlns.com, but state law prevented their intervention. Under the proposed legislation, the state maintains its primary role in policing communities, but local officials can take over responsibility if the state does not follow through when problems arise. ##
