STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Closure of a mobile home park presents tenants in need of low
cost housing with a number of complex issues. Many mobile homes
must be renovated prior to being moved, the move itself can be
costly and complicated by weather conditions, and a new location
must be found. Current law does now allow sufficient time to deal
with these issues.
There is no fiscal impact on general or dedicated funds.
