PARKLAND — Douglas County has started eviction proceedings against the remaining occupants at the Country Acres trailer park in the town of Parkland.

Evictions were filed on four trailers Sept. 14, according to Douglas County Circuit Court records. All four are located in the south trailer park, Douglas County Administrator Ann Doucette said. They have an eviction date of Thursday, Sept. 29.

The north park, across from the Log Cabin Tavern along Douglas County Highway E, has been completely vacated. The county highway department has done some clean-up at the site and secured the entrances, Doucette said. Clean-up will begin at the south park once all the trailers have been vacated.

The county took possession of the property through the tax deed process in June. The trailer parks will be discussed at the Douglas County Land and Development Committee meeting at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27 in the board room of the Government Center. Country Acres is listed on the agenda under informational items.
