RV and Trailer Update for the City of Simonton...

In late December, letters were sent out to residents that had RV trailers in view and appeared to still be inhabiting them.

Please be advised, if you currently have a Recreation vehicle (RV) or trailer on your property that you are living in, and you have NOT applied and been approved for an extension, you are in violation of city ordinance (please see below) and will be subject to municipal court and fines effective April 30, 2019.

Ordinance No. 2013-0802
Sec. 16-104. - Recreational vehicles outside RV parks.
(a)  No recreational vehicle may be used for occupancy within the city except within an RV park licensed by the city as such, or except as provided in subsection (c) of this section.
(b)  A recreational vehicle may be parked or stored outside an RV park so long as no one occupies it for use, no utilities, temporary or permanent, are connected to the recreational vehicle, and the recreational vehicle is not parked on or extending over public property except as provided in subsection (c) of this section.
(c)  An occupied recreational vehicle may be parked or temporarily placed on property in private ownership, excepting manufactured home parks, for a period not to exceed seven days in any one-month period.
