INDIANAPOLIS — RTV6 is learning new information about the reasons behind the closure of a southwest side mobile home park.

Residents of the I-70 Mobile Home Park reached out to RTV6 earlier this week, saying they weren't given enough notice, answers or resources.

In some cases, residents need to move their actual home, which they own — but not the land beneath them.

I-70 management said they're shutting down as an alternative to paying $100,000 in water pipe repairs.

Citizens Energy Group says the repairs would fix issues with the park's private sewer lines, but they're not mandatory.

Citizens Energy has been in contact with the mobile home park about the repairs for about a year. They haven't heard back from the park or its engineering firm since April.
