City of Spencer Shuts Off Power to Trailer Park

The city of Spencer has followed through with threats to shut off power to a trailer park at the corner of West 18th Street and 4th Avenue West after it failed to meet an inspection.

The owner of the park, Bill Caskey, received the notification Monday afternoon, along with the residents. The power was turned off at 10am yesterday (Tues) morning.

Rebecca Goeken, Clay County General Relief Director, says some of the residents have found alternative housing, while others have not.

City officials have cited deplorable conditions at the trailer park, including issues with backed up sewage, among others.
