The Village of Weston is beginning the process to revoke the license of the Green Acres Mobile Home Park.
The Village Board met Monday night to schedule a hearing to discuss the fate of Green Acres.
The Village Administrator, Dean Zuleger says the Everest Metro Police Chief Dan Vergin... and the building inspector, S. Scott Tatro submitted a complaint asking the Village to revoke the owner's license.
According to a complaint, Green Acres is plagued with problems.
"For the last 3 years we've been working with them to clean up their nuisance problems, stray pets, and there was a lot of criminal activity in the park, mostly in the rental units, " says Zuleger.
Zuleger says Green Acres has between 3 and 5 hundred residents, and about 50% own their home.
He says the village has been working with the owner of Green Acres to address the concerns specifically associated with the rental units.
"Last year we met with the management at Green Acres Mobile Home Park and asked them to put in place a tenant plan to reduce criminal activity in the park. Unfortunately over the past months we've been averaging more than 100 police calls a month."
According to the complaint, Chief Vergin says the Green Acres Mobile Home park is "out of control and is creating a public safety risk to the residents of the park, to the residents who live near the park, and to the officers who respond to the calls."
The complaint also says the owner, Gerry Steif, owes the Village $46,368 in property taxes... and $25,706 in past due utility bills.
Atty. Walter Lew, is representing the owner of Green Acres and says his client is declining to comment on the complaint.
The Village Board set the hearing date for Monday, September 29th.
