MHC to Receive Public Sewer Lines

October 30th, 2012

With the soil long inundated with septic systems, residents of Greensprings Mobile Home Park in James City County, near Williamsport, Virginia implored the Board of Supervisors to extend public sewer lines to the community, according to Virginia Gazette. Owner Franklin Management Co. has been pumping and hauling sewage for years, but some backs up into yards, and threatens residents’ health. As MHProNews has learned the supervisors hesitated to pass the measure, fearing the owner would pass the $600,000 cost of the hook-up on to the residents, or develop the property into single-family homes, since the sewer lines would increase the value of the land. An agreement was eventually signed preventing the owner from passing the cost onto residents.
