A few weeks ago, Dougherty County rolled out its plan to clean up mobile home parks devastated by the January storms, and that plan is now in action.

Demolition crews have been out at Big Pine Estates, formerly known as Paradise Village, throughout this week. That's one of four parks that'll soon be demolished, along with Willow Nook, Ivy and Piney Woods.

Assistant County Administrator Mike McCoy said they estimate the total project cost will be around $2 million.

"The payments will be ongoing as we proceed to transition to the private-property debris removal program, which addresses the trailer parks," he said.

Demolition and debris removal in those parks are scheduled to wrap up by January.
