Reprieve in Community Closure Collision, Another Round Ahead?


Local media originally reported that the tortured odyssey of the Northern Housing Community in Schofield, Wisconsin did not receive a timely appeal.

Those initial accounts turned out to be inaccurate.

Your article was very interesting,” said Sarah L. Ruffi, of the Ruffi Law Offices in Wausau, WI. “I represent Northern Mobile Home Park, LLC in its battle with the City of Schofield, Wisconsin.  I just read your article and wanted to clarify that Northern DID file a timely appeal.”

ABC News 9 amended a prior report, and confirmed what Ruffi said.

Schofield city leaders said an appeal filed by owners of Northern Mobile Home Park * was submitted before its deadline,” said local media.

News 9 previously reported the appeal was not filed in time. Now, we’ve learned city leaders received the appeal on May 1, but it was sent four days earlier. On Tuesday, city leaders said it’s in the hands of the city’s attorney,” stated the ABC affiliate.

Residents of the Northern Housing Community now have some hope.

It’s certainly slightly more hopeful but it places everybody in limbo,” Wayne Warren, a resident said. “You hope for the best and plan for the worst, it’s all you can do.”

While News 9 said they received no reply from management, MHProNews received the comment from the attorney shown above, part of a longer message.
