A West Virginia commission is discussing what they want to do about unauthorized RV parks.

The Harrison County (W.Va.) Commission is looking at how to handle the growing number of unauthorized RV parks springing up across the county, according to WBOY.

During their regular meeting Wednesday (Oct. 24), the commission heard concerns about the lack of standards as more and more RV parks are opened to accommodate oil and gas workers.

Some across the county hold more than 30 vehicles and commissioners say not all are permitted or safe.

“The question is, many of them might be in flood plains and we really don’t have any restriction that they get a county permit before they do that, even though it may not cost them anything,” said Commissioner Ron Watson.
