Mobile home issue is on the move in the town

The eyesore that comprises three mobile homes and violates a Town of Belgium ordinance could be on its way to a resolution.

Town Zoning Administrator Charlie Parks told the Town Board last week that the case is going through court.

Dennis Dahm of 2046 Jay Rd. claims someone dropped three mobile homes on his property in the middle of the night and is suing the person, Parks said after talking to Dahm’s attorney, Ed Ritger.

Dahm took the alleged perpetrator to court for trespassing and, Parks said, has started taking apart the trailers and plans to be done with the job by the end of the year.

Parks said the case has a complication in that it was filed in Sheboygan County Court but enforcement is in Ozaukee County. Ritger, he said, will have to figure that out.

Town Chairman Tom Winker said in September that the town has been as patient as it could be with Dahm in asking him to remove the mobile homes. The board decided to fine him $100 a day until they’re gone.

“I think it got his attention,” Parks said.

Dahm recently turned in certified survey maps in seeking to split his property, but the town is waiting until the mobile home issue is resolved before taking up that matter.

“We have leverage now. I like that,” Winker said. “I don’t want to give up that leverage.”
