MAIZE, Kan. -

City leaders in Maize vote unanimously to send a mobile home park ordinance back to a committee.

The proposal would have required parks to have paved roads, updated storm shelters, and an increased license fee, thus raising the price to live in the mobile home parks.

The owner of the Sunflower Village Mobile Home Park said it would have cost him $165,000 dollars to comply with the new law.

That cost would then be passed onto residents through increased rent. He says he'd have to collect $10,000 more a month from his 50 tenants to cover the cost.

Opponents who attended Monday's meeting said they are worried their voice isn't being heard, since no one on the committee is from their neighborhood.

The committee will make modifications to the ordinance, then present changes to Maize city staff.
