Some of Union County's Current Ordinances
Mobile homes are permitted in mobile home parks only. However, if you wish to upgrade an existing mobile home, you may do so if you purchase a model no older than ten (10) years. You must obtain a building permit and the mobile home you wish to replace must not have been removed from the property longer than six months prior. If it has been over six months you can no longer replace it with a another mobile home.
If you begin building without obtaining a building permit a fine of $50 will be assessed over and above the cost of the building permit.
