Tuscaloosa Defies Law Allowing Modular Units in AL Cities

The Crimson White reports from Alabama that 11,131 people in Tuscaloosa County have registered for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), part of the 71,487 in the state who have signed up.  An estimated 3.5 million cubic yards of debris litter the state, 1.5 million of it in Tuscaloosa.  So far, $40 million in grants have been given to jurisdictions, and FEMA is working closely with state and local agencies to find housing for the displaced persons.  FEMA said modular housing is not being considered because there are enough places for people to live.  Additional dismissal of modular housing as a solution came to light in a conversation with MHMSM, Sherry Norris, Executive Director of the Alabama Manufactured Housing Association, who said Tuscaloosa has an ordinance prohibiting modular housing, despite a state ruling that modular units are allowable in any city.
