·1 min read

Sep. 23—WARRENTON — Warren County extended its deadline for the Abandoned Manufactured Home Demolition Grant through Feb. 25, 2022.

The grant cycle originally opened on March 1. The cost to eligible property owners is $305 for a single-wide unit ($35 demolition permit and $270 landfill tipping fees) or $575 for a double-wide unit ($35 demolition permit and $540 landfill tipping fees). The county will select a contractor that will be reimbursed through the state-funded program administered by Warren County.

The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ previously awarded Warren County a $10,000 grant to assist in the deconstruction of abandoned manufactured homes as part of the enforcement of the county's abandoned manufactured home ordinance. The $10,000 was awarded through the State Solid Waste Trust Fund.

The Warren County Board of Commissioners first adopted the abandoned manufactured home ordinance in 2008 and adopted an amended document in 2009. From 2010 to 2017, Warren County was awarded three grants in three separate cycles through this program to aid eligible property owners in the legal deconstruction and disposal of abandoned single-wide or double-wide units. The grants totaled $89,500 over the seven years and resulted in the removal of approximately 50 units from the county.
