More Than a Dozen Mobile Homes and Structures on Proposed Demolition List
Prince George, B.C.- City of Prince George Councillor Brian Skakun told 250News the effort to clean up Lombardy Mobile Home park on Norwood Street would be a massive undertaking (see previous story) and the details are now emerging.
When Council meets this Wednesday evening, it will be asked to order the demolition and removal of 16 mobile homes, and that the entire mobile home park be cleared of waste and debris.
The City does in fact have liens against 4 mobile homes in that park, ranging from $100 to $300 dollars for unpaid taxes on those structures. As the structure owners don’t own the land, they are responsible for only that portion of the tax bill. The owner of the actual land is not in arrears in taxes.The mobile homes with liens are among those on the porposed demolition list.
The park has been the site of numerous complaints over the years to not only bylaw services in the City but to the RCMP as well. From 2012 to 2014, there have been 335 incidents in that mobile home park reported to police, of that number 142 occurred last year.
