Angleton City Hall

ANGLETON — Developers of a planned 837-lot trailer park on the city’s outskirts are going to have to come up with a different way to supply necessary utilities to their lots following the Angleton City Council’s vote against extending utilities to the site.

“I also want to reiterate the fact I am not against mobile homes,” said Brazoria County Commissioner David Linder, who spoke against the proposal at Tuesday night’s meeting. “I’ve got friends who live in them — hell, I may be living in them if my wife throws me out tonight, which is fine with me, I can live in my camper. But, I’m against, I want to reiterate, these high-density developments in areas that are not in the city limits that the county has to deal with — our sheriff, our deputies, our constable offices. That’s what I’m concerned about.”
