GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) _ Residents of a southwest Kansas mobile home park have until Friday to leave the property and may have to abandon their homes because a county law prohibits older mobile homes like theirs from relocating to other parks.
Western Kansas News reports Garden City Community College bought the park's land in December from Business Management Service Inc. The company notified the park's tenants in early December about the sale and told them they had until March 15 to relocate.
In Finney County, mobile homes built by 1986 can be relocated without special permits, and those built between 1975 and 1986 can be moved with a permit. Mobile homes built before 1975 can't be relocated.
Residents say most of the homes are too old to move, and they're seeking compensation.
