Owner claims progress being made as some Lyons residents go days without power

Power is still disconnected at the Canalside Mobile Home Park in Lyons, and with temperatures climbing into the 90’s, that has some residents worried.

Melissa Lehr lives in the Canalside Mobile Home Park with her three children. Without power, she has no ability to run a fan.

Their trailer has gotten so hot, that Lehr had to send her sons to a relative’s house for the week. She says the situation is worse for those who have nowhere to go.

“If they have relatives, they’re going to stay with them. some people called the red cross and got told they couldn’t be helped. other people are trying to borrow a generator. It’s definitely turned our world upside down in that crazy little trailer park,” said Melissa Lehr, a resident of Canalside Mobile Home Park.

Power to the park was shut off by new york state electric and gas last Thursday, after a request from the Town of Lyons Code Enforcement.

The town cited safety concerns and code violations.

Exposed wiring and frayed lines can be seen surrounding the 25 to 30 trailers.

The land is owned by Phil Provenzano. He tells news8 previous owners failed to fix many of the problems at the park, but that he is taking action now.
