I live in a trailer park in sodus township, sodus mi 49126. i have a 1986 firebird doing an engine restore. i have recently had to deal with ordinance officers. i have spoke to my park manager and she has stated that she gives him no permission to be on my lot nor any others. the parks roads are privately maintained not township nor county. I have not had one complaint from neighbors nor park enforcement. All body parts are still intact and mounted to the vehicle no broken windows, Not an eye sore really.
If he has authority to be there then you cannot keep him away. However you can get his information, boss's information, and find out what his authority is. You can also ask him to leave, politely, and if he says no ask for his authority on that also. Be respectful but if he doesn't know ask him to come back with the information. You can also call your local police but they might not be willing/able to help. Good Luck,
Ms. Nepton is licensed to practice law in Michigan. The response herein is not legal advice and does not create an attorney/client relationship. The response is in the form of legal education and is intended to provide general information. Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable. Ms. Nepton strongly advises the questioner to confer with an attorney in order to ensure proper advice is received.
Just because the park's roads are privately maintained does not make it a sovereign country. Take Ms. Nepton's advice and ask for his authority.
I am not your attorney. Avvo and its users acknowledge that no attorney-client relationship is established by using avvo.com. Nothing published in this website constitutes actual legal advice. You should consult with an attorney of your choice who has experience in your inquired field of law. If you are in California and have questions about estate planning, I'd be happy to receive your call.
Request a copy of the Sodus Township ordinance. Get a copy from the Township Hall. Speak to the Township Clerk in order to confirm that the Township has over jurisdiction in this matter to enforce its ordinances in your mobile home park. I think you'll find that the ordinances can be enforced in the park, however, that doesn't mean what you are doing is an activity addressed by the particular ordinance. After you read the ordinance and talk to the Township Clerk, call an attorney if you have further questions. Take the ordinance and any citation to the attorney. Good luck.
