Commissioner Kirby Delauter was the one who suggested reducing to nothing a tax on trailer parks, which the commissioners unanimously supported last week. It’s a good move if, as Delauter hoped, the break goes to residents rather than owners of the property on which the mobile homes sit. The 15 percent tax is charged on the cost of leasing the land for the trailer and collected by the county from trailer-park owners. The park owners presumably pass the cost on to tenants in their rental bills.
