State AG settles cent. Pa. mobile home park suit

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The state attorney general’s office says the owners of a central Pennsylvania mobile home park have agreed to pay more than $26,000 to settle a lawsuit over relocation expenses due to residents who had to move after the park closed.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane had said in a lawsuit that siblings and Hilltop Mobile Home Park owners Kenneth Mayes II and his sister, Sharon Mayes, violated the Manufactured Home Community Rights Act in closing the park in State College on Feb. 28.

A statement from Kane’s office this week said the owners will pay $21,700 to distribute to residents and $5,000 for court costs and attorney fees.

The agreement calls for an additional $10,000 to be set aside if more residents file valid clams in the next 30 days.
