Locke mobile home park plagued by health violations sold, county fines paid

A Locke mobile home park cited for multiple public health violations over the last decade has been sold and county fines have been paid, the Cayuga County Health Department said.

The new owners of the former Walnut Grove Mobile Home Park on Tucker Hill Road plan to keep the property a mobile home park and current tenants are expected to remain, said Public Health Director Kathleen Cuddy. It marks the end of a long and arduous process for the county and especially current tenants of the park, who have been under a boil water notice since about 2013 due to a non-functioning sanitation system.

“We’re certainly glad to have things moving forward in a positive direction, and we have every indication to think that things will continue that way, which is good for the residents, good for the community,” Cuddy said in a phone interview Wednesday.
