An RV park in northern California, housing more than 90 low-income people, could soon be shut down due to failing state health and safety codes, according to a report by ActionNewsNow.com.
However, the owner says he has been working with Butte County Officials to comply.
Those living at the park, located north of Sacramento, are people of all ages and the owner of the park says if his property is shut down, tenants could start the New Year suffering from homelessness this winter.
“We’ve turned this place into home,” said Leeia McDonel, a resident of Paradise Pines RV Park in Paradise.
A home that could soon be taken away…
“I’ve just learned to take it one day at a time,” she said,
The Paradise Pines RV Park is in jeopardy of shutting down by the state. Even after the owner Frank Tewsley had been working with the Butte County Health Department for a year to meet necessary plumbing requirements.
“They’ve been working with me and they’re good people and they give me letters saying that I can continue on as I’m doing as long as I make progress,” he said.
Repairs which Tewsley says he’s made. Out of the four sewage disposal write-ups, he’s complied with three and has been working on the fourth.
But, the state health department said his septic system is on the verge of failing.
