Mobile home park hearing is Tuesday

A Board of Appeals hearing on a Harmans mobile home park under scrutiny by county health inspectors is scheduled for Tuesday evening in the County Council chambers in Annapolis.

The hearing on Ridgewood Mobile Home Park was to take place this week, but had to be postponed after between 75 and 100 people indicated they wished to attend.

County inspectors say they have found numerous health code )) violations in the park and have refused to grant the owner, Symcha Shpak, a license to operate since 1991.

Two weeks ago, Bob Pollock, the senior assistant county attorney, said he may be forced to close the park if the appeals board upholds the county's decision to withhold the license.

According to the county, code violations include bare wires from a transformer, unsafe decks, deteriorating siding on trailers, tires stored under homes, improperly secured gas tanks and water leaks. The hearing is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the County Council chambers at the Arundel Center in Annapolis.
