The Esto Town Council in the panhandle of Florida nearly straddling the Alabama state line approved the first reading of the newly proposed manufactured home ordinance which defines requirements before being sited in town. The homes “Must be structurally sound, clean, sanitary, well maintained and approved by council.” Any home moved onto property without council approval is subject to a $250 fine and a lien being placed on the property. “An additional $10 per day will be charged until it is moved off the property.” As chipleypaper.com reports to MHProNews, the homes must also meet all U. S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Construction and Safety Standards as well as the Florida Manufactured Building Act. Homes being sited in town may also receive a 90 extension to allow for hooking up utilities, putting on skirting, and any other finishing touches needed.
