The Union County Health Department makes one inspection a year at the county's manufactured home parks on behalf of the Ohio Manufacatured Home Commission (OMHC). These are typically conducted in the spring. These are unscheduled, walk-through inspections. The results of the inspections are mailed to the OMHC, owners and park managers. Any violations are expected to be corrected within a reasonable time frame.
Manufactured home parks in Ohio are licensed and regulated by the Ohio Manufactured Home Commission.
