Officials seeking help to relocate residents at mobile home park due to unpaid water bill
Flint, Mich. - Flint City officials are requesting help relocating Elms Mobile Home Park residents ahead of water shut off due to none payment.
According to the City of Flint's records, the utility accounts for the property have a past due balance of $141,323.11.
The city says the owner and management company of the mobile home park, Elms Investors, LLC, has made only one payment for water and sewer services since August of 2015 in the amount of $647.40.
City officials say they were informed that residents rent payments submitted to the park operator included separate amounts for water and sewer services.
About 24 mobile homes remain occupied on this property.
According to the City of Flint, the property went into receivership last fall just as the City’s collection program began.
Right now the city is partnering with Genesee County United Way, American Red Cross, Genesee Health Systems and others to help residents relocate.
“I know this is a difficult and unfortunate situation for those who call Elms home,” said Mayor Weaver. “I hope people can also understand the difficult position property owners like this put the city in. We are trying to do the best we can given everything that’s happened in Flint, and the issues we continue to face as we work to keep the city operating as it should. We are taking steps to be more proactive and transparent to let residents know what’s going on and provide as much assistance for residents as we can.”
