There is no good time to make more than 20 households pack up and move out of their houses. The Tate Street trailer court sale is one of those extremely grey issues, that are  part of life and business in a city.

The City of Lawrenceburg and the land owners are both between a rock and a hard place. Both have moved toward each other, with the city coming up with a program to help residents relocate and the property owners helping a bit as well. Stuck in the middle are the people who live there, who may not be able to afford someplace else to live.

Even more stuck are the trailer court residents’ children. Mike Lawrence hit the nail on the head when he said the kids have no part in the various decisions by adults.
