Williams County won’t issue new permits to allow RVs to be placed on waterfront properties, despite an extensive review of legal options that could have been created to permit RVs to be legally parked on summer-recreational properties, a report said.

The county currently prohibits RVs from private property, except for designated RV campgrounds and mobile home parks. This means that neighbors may complain about RVs being parked on their private property and demand they be removed.

What sparked the issue was when Development Services was approached by a gentleman looking for a legal way to park his RV on private land near the waterfront.

In rare cases, people request waivers or variances. It’s a rare request that Williams County Commissioners have had to reconsider the necessity of a permit.

Williams County Commissioner David Montgomery stated that “I think most people who probably own those lots don’t want them there every day anyway.” “I think it’s a seasonal thing, based on what I’ve seen driving around, I suppose.”

Montgomery noted that new permits are never one-size-fits-all. The board is constantly changing the rules to make them more suitable for everyone.

He said, “I would suggest that we just leave it alone until this becomes an issue.”
