Two manufactured housing communities (MHCs) in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin in the southeast corner of the state may lose their licenses to operate Dec. 31, 2013 unless they correct zoning and building violations. Westwood Estates Manufactured Housing Community must remove a pile of dirt and repair a stockade fence as conditions to make certain its license stays intact. Scotty’s Mobile Home Park has been directed to correct the violations in seven manufactured homes, as MHProNews has been informed. Scotty’s owner, G. John Ruffolo, a Kenosha WI Alderman, says he was not initially aware one of the homes had extensive damage from vandals, and added that he has now addressed 90 percent of the violations. As to the vandalized home, according to kenoshanews.com, Ruffolo says he has to go through a lengthy legal process before he can demolish or remove it. If the village declares it worthless, then he has the right to demolish it. Otherwise, an manufactured homeowner can claim monetary damages.
