A mobile home park in Laingsburg may be at risk for getting taken over by the state if the owner doesn't do something soon.
Some residents at Moon Lake Estates located on Colby Lake Road are fed up with the amount of abandoned trailers, large pot holes, ongoing water quality problems, and dozens of empty lots.
"I'm very upset. I can't let my daughter out at dark, because I'm afraid she'll get hurt out here," said long-time resident Burney Knickerbocker.
Meanwhile, others seem to understand why the conditions are poor. "We're low income," explained Jack Blaylock. "It's like a used car. You get what you pay for. The owner has taken on this migraine to fix this place. You can only do so much with so little," he said.
Moon Lake Estates owner Steve Raleigh doesn't deny the park has troubles, but says when he bought it back in 2010 for $250,000 in cash, it was already in rough shape.
"I agree. This park needs a lot of work and that requires a lot of money," said Raleigh. "I inherited some problems from the previous owners, because it's been an ongoing situation for them regarding the well & the wastewater treatment plant."
Raleigh tells 6 News only 30 of the more than 100 lots are occupied, making it difficult for him to generate enough money to keep up with the maintenance.
"I would had it done by now if it weren't for the economy and I wasn't denied by banks. It's not an issue of want. It's an issue of being able to get the dollars," he said.
Saturday, Raleigh had workers paint the mail room. He said now that he's finally been approved for a loan, more repairs are coming soon.
According to court documents, a judge has given Raleigh until October 31 to come up with the plan to bring the park up to state code. Something he says he plans to do. If he doesn't, the park could be taken over by the state. The Attorney General's office is also investigating this case, trying to determine if Raleigh even has a license to operate the park.
