A recently passed law will soon help manufactured home community owners as well as their residents.
House Bill 381 will permit manufactured home community owner/operators to use a process that classifies a mobile or manufactured home as abandoned, and then will allow it to be removed from the community.
WALB dubs Darrel Ealum as a former state representative and community owner. The following legislators sponsored the bill that became law.
(1) Corbett, John 174th (2) Ealum, Darrel 153rd (3) LaRiccia, Dominic 169th
(4) Shaw, Jason 176th (5) Watson, Sam 172nd
Sponsored In Senate By
Kennedy, John 18th
The legislation was backed by the Georgia Manufactured Housing Association (GMHA), a source close to the trade group said.
Ealum said that “What this bill did is develop a very simple structure where the land owner and the local governments together, your cities, county government can work together get control of these old abandoned homes and get rid of them. Get them to the dump and have them torn down.”
