Mobile home park faces utility issues

The Evangeline Mobile Home Park on North Main Street will be inspected for electrical safety and compliance with utility right-of-way guidelines.
At Monday’s city council meeting, owner Mark Brignac and his attorney Craig Piccione requested that the city utility system perform electric service upgrades at the park. Part of the park was upgraded by the city several years ago, but several trailers, Brignac said, have a dangerously inadequate power supply, resulting in damage to appliances and posing a fire risk.
