Senoia okays rule on pre-owned manufactured homes
The Senoia City Council Tuesday night heard the second reading and unanimously approved an ordinance addressing the regulation of pre-owned manufactured homes.
City attorney Drew Whalen last month 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.
