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 not allow sufficient time to deal with
There is no fiscal impact on general or dedicated funds.
