Mobile home park license revoked, residents given 20 days to appeal

SCHOFIELD, Wis. (WAOW) -

The license for Northern Mobile Home Park has been revoked after a unanimous vote by the city council Monday.

According to the mayor of Schofield, residents of the trailer park have 20 days to appeal.

City leaders say seven warning letters were sent to the park's management team about unsafe living conditions.

One resident is overwhelmed by the city's decision to take away a place she has called home for so long.

"I could cry over it. These are people -- people -- I'm talking about," Arlene Ames said. " It doesn't only frustrate me, it makes me angry when I think of it but that's just how unfair this world is."

According to the mayor, the city will help place residents in nearby mobile homes.

Residents are expected to vacate the park by August 1st.
