Mich. County Condemns Campground
A combination RV park/campground and mobile-home park located in Lansing, Mich., has to shut down due to sewage violations, the Ingham County Health Department announced today (Feb. 25).
Life O’ Riley Mobile Home Park and Campground was condemned due to an imminent public health threat, according to a press release.
The leading issue for the condemnation order is the history of the failing sewage disposal system, including numerous illicit discharges of sewage and other public health issues as they relate to water supply and solid waste disposal.
The owner of the Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park and Campground has 10 days from the posting of this order to cease all operations and close down the mobile home park and campground. All residents of the mobile home park and campground will have to relocate within those 10 days. If a resident owns their mobile home unit and it can be moved, the owner of the mobile home unit can move it to another mobile home park. ICHD is condemning the mobile home park/campground, not individual units.
The City of Lansing and other community partner agencies have put together resources to assist residents with emergency housing and to find alternative long-term housing. The Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park and Campground can be reopened when the facility owner/manager can demonstrate to ICHD that all issues identified in the order have been corrected.
