As widely reported, the Ingham County Health Department has issued a condemnation order for the Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park located at 6726 Washington Avenue in south Lansing. The order requires that all residents relocate.
The park was condemned because of recurrent problems with the park’s sewage disposal system. It is reported that the failing system frequently discharged raw sewage, which pooled beneath trailers and on the ground. These conditions violate the state’s Public Health Code, which the Health Department is obligated to enforce.
Since issuing the condemnation order, the Health Department has worked with the City of Lansing and other public and charitable agencies to help residents find new shelter and get connected with other social services. While many residents have already found new temporary or permanent homes, many others are still living in uncertainty at the park.
The City of Lansing’s Dr. Joan Jackson Johnson has taken the lead in helping residents find new housing. She is adamant that no one from Life O’Riley will be left without a home.
If you or someone you know is still in need of help, call Dr. Johnson’s office at 483-4477. For questions regarding the condemnation, call the Health Department at 887-4312. And if I can help, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I spent some time last week assisting residents with applications for temporary housing. Some folks are understandably frustrated and anxious about what the future holds for them. It is my sincere hope that everyone ends up in better living conditions than what they’ve left at the trailer park.
