WEST FRANKFORT (AP) – West Frankfort Mayor Tom Jordan told WSIL-TV that the 8,200-resident Franklin County city is considering whether to ban single-wide trailer homes and to not allow trailer parks.

Jordan says some single-wide home owners may be moving to town simply to avoid stricter codes elsewhere, and that such trailer homes can decrease property values of neighboring structures.

The City Council will discuss the proposed ordinance change Tuesday.
