An eastern Kentucky mayor wants his city to rethink a ban on mobile homes within the city limits.
Longworth told the Harlan Daily Enterprise the concept is part of an effort to find ways to bring more money into a financially-troubled city.
Council member James Hagy liked the idea, but suggested limiting lots to one mobile home each.
Hagy says, "Just like the deal in Rio Vista when they put a trailer park in, we don't want a trailer park in the city."
