Texas Town Provides Factory-built Housing for City Workers

The city of George West, Texas, north of Corpus Christi issued a $2 million certificate of obligation to make infrastructure upgrades including a new police department building, street repairs and park and recreation improvements. Some of the funds were also used to purchase a modular home and four single-section manufactured homes sited in an old city park, and the modular is being rented to city manager Sandra Martinez for $700 a month, according to kristv.com. When asked how a private home is a public improvement, Martinez replied because it sits on public property, and it was approved by city council during an executive session.

While an investigation by KRIS-TV could not pinpoint a formal discussion by the council regarding leasing any of the homes, Mayor Sylvia Steele said the dwellings are meant to attract quality public servants. The city secretary, a school coach and a teacher rent three of the homes, but it is unclear whether the other units are occupied by city employees. MHProNews.com understands George West is on the edge of the Eagle Ford Shale energy exploration where housing is becoming more expensive. ##
