The Oak Creek Town Board meets at 7 p.m. Thursday for its semimonthly meeting at Oak Creek Town Hall, 129 Nancy Crawford Blvd.

On the agenda:

■ A liquor license application for 200 Sharp St., the old home of Black Mountain Tavern. Former Town Board member Lawrence Jaconetta applied for the license.

■ A revision to the new water tank project schedule, which would halt work through the winter.

■ A discussion about the public works department possibly adding push-to-talk capabilities to cellphones.

■ South Routt Community Center Board representative appointments

■ Northwest Transportation Planning Region Board appointments.

■ A discussion of a land-use code provision regarding mobile homes. The current land-use code states that mobile-home owners outside of designated mobile home parks can upgrade only to fixed-foundation homes and not another trailer. After receiving a letter from a citizen expressing a concern about the code, the board agreed to revisit the issue.

For more information, call town clerk Karen Halterman at 970-736-2422.

It was I that suggested the current rules on mobile homes outside of mobile home parks is not working.

The problem, as I see it, is that the current rules have had unintended consequences of owners of existing mobile homes on town lots are trying to maintain old mobile homes that were never designed to last this many years in the high mountains and snow loads.

I think it would make more sense to let owners replace old mobile homes with newer mobile homes so people can upgrade their living conditions. But then also force old mobile homes to be removed when the property is sold so the old, some arguably unsafe, mobile homes will not remain forever.
