The codes and ordinances of the City of O'Fallon allow for the development of mobile home parks within its City limits and establish regulations governing their establishment as well as the placement of individual mobile homes upon lots therein.
Although the codes and ordinances of the City of O'Fallon require inspection of placement of these mobile homes and their appurtenances, and their connection to necessary services for the purposes of safety and conformance with said codes and ordinances, the City also recognizes that certain cost savings are realized through the unified nature of mobile homes and their appurtenances when erected as an organized whole.
There is hereby adopted a permit fee of thirty-five dollars ($35.00) which shall cover all electrical and plumbing inspections made relating to the initial placement or replacement of any mobile home, as well as any porch, deck, shed or any other outbuilding, piers, pads, awnings, or flag poles that may be erected with the initial placement or replacement of any mobile home or erected within six (6) months (one hundred eighty (180) days) following issuance of the permit.
The aforementioned permit fee shall not be considered to include, or waive, sanitary sewer or water system connection fees, charges incurred in the purchase of water meters or inspection thereof,, fences, satellite dish antennas, above ground pools, carports, or any other appurtenance not specifically referenced.
The responsibility of completing any necessary application forms, submitting any required plans, payment of fees, and scheduling of inspections involving the initial placement or replacement of any mobile home and its appurtenances shall rest with the mobile home owner.
The mobile home park owner shall, at the time of proposed placement or replacement of any mobile home in his/her park, advise the mobile home owner in writing, that said mobile home owner must obtain the aforementioned City permit.
Any person found to be in violation of any provision of this Chapter shall be subject to a fine of up to five hundred dollars ($500.00).
