Plattsmouth Links Nusiance Codes to Trailer Park Permits
The Plattsmouth City Council voted Monday to consider compliance with the city's nuisance codes as part of its annual renewal process for trailer park permits.
The change makes it the duty of trailer park owners to assure there is compliance with issues involving tidiness and public health.
Councilwoman Jeanie Brookhouser said some trailer parks have a good track record for code compliance, but others could improve.
Brookhouser: "I think we need to hold the trailer park owners accountable for keeping up the appearance of the trailer parks. Everyone else in the community is held accountable and so the property owners within there need to be as well."
The city council voted unanimously to approve seven of eight trailer park permits, but there was a 4 to 3 vote for the South Side Mobile Home Park owned by Gary and Melanie Karre.
Five votes were needed to approve the permit and the fifth vote was cast by Mayor Michael Bowman.
