PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) - The Iberville Parish Council put mobile home park, recreational vehicle park and apartment complex owners on a 30-day notice that they are responsible for providing adequate trash containers for their residents or there will be consequences.
For several months, The Advocate reports the parish has been battling at least two mobile home parks that are littered with trash, so the council amended the parish's code requiring the containers.
Owners in violation will be served a written notice and if they don't provide trash bins within seven days, the parish will provide one and bill the owners. If that bill is not paid within 30 days the cost will be added to their taxes. If their taxes go unpaid, then a lien will be put against their property.
