Senoia reviews ordinance for pre-owned manufactured homes

The Senoia City Council Monday night heard the first reading of an ordinance addressing the regulation of pre-owned manufactured homes.

City attorney Drew Whalen told the council that the ordinance addressing pre-owned manufactured homes was needed so that the city could be in compliance with recent changes in state law.

“The city needs an ordinance to regulate pre-owned manufactured homes as long as age is not used as a factor,” Whalen said.

Whalen’s comment was in reference to the new state law that says a city cannot impose health or safety standards or conditions based on the age of a manufactured home.

The ordinance states that the city will inspect the home and issue a certificate of occupancy and that the home must conform with zoning and land use regulations.
