Minco City Council Passes Mobile-Manufactured Home Ordinance
Friday, 10.23.2009, 04:32pm (GMT-5)

Minco City Council Passes Mobile-Manufactured Home Ordinance
Or Did They? State Statute Requires Full Council Majority for Passage



By Kelly Rupp 

Four out of Minco’s eight City Council members voted to
approve an ordinance limiting the placement of trailers and mobile homes inside
of Minco city limits at the Minco City Council meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 14. 

Council members Hoppy Bomgardner, Keith Horn, Jimmy Rice and
Michelle Overton voted in favor of the motion. 

Council members Susan Hollandsworth, Shirley Oaks and Shawn
Bliss voted against the ordinance. Council member Debbi Keeble did not attend
the meeting. 

Although the ordinance was declared passed by the council
and sent for legal publication, state law specifies that a majority vote of all
council members is required to pass an ordinance. 

Oklahoma Statute 11 Section 14-102 states, “All proposed
ordinances of a municipality shall be considered at a public meeting of the
council or board of trustees. A vote of a majority of all the members of the
council or board of trustees shall be required for the final passage of an ordinance.”


According to the Oklahoma Municipal League Handbook, “The
proposed ordinance must be passed by a majority of all of the members of a
governing body. A majority of the quorum is not sufficient.” 

Additionally, a separate vote is required to attach an emergency
measure to an ordinance. 

Oklahoma Statute 11 Section 14-103 states: Every ordinance
except an emergency ordinance shall go into effect thirty (30) days after its
final passage unless it specifies a later date. An emergency measure necessary for
the immediate preservation of peace, health, or safety shall go into effect upon
its final passage unless it specifies a later date. Such an emergency measure must
state in a separate section the reasons why it is necessary that the measure become
effective immediately. The question of emergency must be ruled upon separately
and approved by the affirmative vote of at least three fourths (3/4) of all the
members of the governing body of the municipality.” 

Six votes would be required to pass an emergency clause.
However, the council did not take a separate vote on the emergency clause. 

The issue of manufactured or mobile home placement
limitation was first raised at the council’s Sept. 14 regular meeting by
Councilman Hoppy Bomgardner. The issue was tabled at that meeting and carried
over for discussion and decision at the Sept. 30 special meeting. The Sept. 30
agenda item sought to pass a resolution limiting the placement of mobile homes
and manufactured homes to “tracts of land 10 acres or greater or within a
designated mobile home and/or trailer park.” 

The item, cosponsored by Mayor Keith McMullen, was tabled
without discussion at the Sept. 30 meeting pending review by the Planning
Commission, Mayor McMullen informed the Council at the Sept. 30 meeting. 

The ordinance presented to the council at the Oct. 13
regular council meeting carries the following restrictions: 

“Paragraph 4: No manufactured home and/or mobile home, as
defined in these Ordinances shall be permitted to be placed on tracts of land
within the City limits of Minco, Oklahoma, unless said tract is ten (10) acres
or greater, or is within a designated mobile home and/or trailer park. 

“Paragraph 5: Manufactured homes may be placed on tracts of
land ten (10) acres or larger with home being no less than fifteen hundred
(1500) square feet and located within the central one-third (1/3) of the ten
(10) acre tract. 

“Paragraph 7: Any areas in which free-standing manufactured
homes have been permitted due to “grandfathered” usage, “vested rights” or
“history of use” will only continue to be permitted to the original “grandfathered”
property owner or occupant. Upon the sale of such property or death of the
original “owner/ owners or occupant, the manufactured housing unit shall be
removed. 

“Paragraph 8: In the event of a verified natural disaster which
destroys an existing non-conforming manufactured home, replacement may be permitted,
providing the replacement manufactured home is of equal or greater value as the
damaged home was when new at current market rates, The replacement home must not
be more than five years old and be equal or larger in square footage of living space.
Replacement must occur within one hundred twenty (120) days of the verified
disaster. 

“Paragraph 9: Any freestanding manufactured home that is
damaged or in disrepair to such an extent that it is no longer suitable for
human occupation shall be removed. The manufactured home shall not be repaired;
but must be removed from the location. Whether the manufactured home is damaged
or in disrepair to such an extent that it is no longer suitable for human
habitation shall be determined by the Minco City Council.” 

Section 2 of the ordinance declares an emergency and specifies
the ordinance will take effect in 60 days from the date of passage, Oct. 13. 

If and when the ordinance goes into effect, the owners of
manufactured or mobile homes will need to determine how to work within the
requirements of the ordinance while still protecting the value of their
property. 

“The owners need to get their title purged. As soon as they
get the title purged it becomes real estate,” said Bethny Fielder of Red-E
Financial. 

Purging the title makes the manufactured or mobile home a
part of the property, according to Verna Overton of Landlady Realty. 

“They need to go to the Tag Agency and the courthouse and
get Form 756 to get the title purged,” Overton said. 

“The title cannot have a lien against it in order to be purged,
so they will have to pay it off or refinance it,” Fielder said. 

The next regular City Council meeting is scheduled for
Monday, Nov. 9 at 6:30.
