Residents at McAllen Mobile Home Park Questioning Citations
UPDATE (9/27): The city of McAllen says they are working with residents who received green building permits notices.
The notices, not citations as previously reported, are issued for storage sheds, carports and porches on properties.
"It was not our staff going out there doing any kind of investigative work. It was actually a call and or a visit that we go from people in the RV park itself," explains McAllen City Manager Roel Rodriguez. "So it's our duty that we understand what the issues are, if there are violations that we clearly identify how to clear those up and that's the process we're doing."
Some residents say they've lived in the park for years.
Rodriguez adds they're giving homeowners time to go to the city and obtain the permit.
