He said as part of an effort to assist in the voluntary clean up of the Park, the Board has agreed to a tire amnesty program, so residents can take tires to the landfill, and the Board authorized a metal only vehicle amnesty for residents to bring old vehicles to the landfill free of charge. Beals thought the vehicle amnesty would happen during the month of June, adding mobile homes were not part of the waiver. He said he had a meeting last Friday with State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) to evaluate respective issues and to understand the role between the County and HCD as well as what that to do with the condition of the park with no responsible party.
Beals stated the Board continues to discuss the options identified on April 19th. Beals concluded that the first and foremost issue will be to proceed with enforcement actions against those individuals and uses that are clearly violations and to establish an understanding of proper use of occupancy and improper use of occupancy. He told the Board, this item will be a “time pit” for their work and felt once started they would have to stay focused and would be using a lot of resources.
