MANTECA–

Residents at the Sleepy Hollow mobile home park in Manteca have five days to get out. According to the state, several of  the 21 trailers on site violate health and safety codes.

Violations are said to range from raw sewage, to no running water and no gas.

“We are poor people, we have no where to go!” one resident told FOX40.

Several people in the community told us they wish they had longer than five days to figure out their next step. Most of the residents, who insist they pay rent every month, contrast the opinion of others in the neighborhood — who say the Sleepy Hollow community consists mostly of stringers, living for free.

FOX40 tried to reach out to the landlord, but did not hear back for comment prior to our 5:30 p.m. newscast Sunday. Meantime, the state will be placing dumpsters in the park, with surveillance cameras to keep the area empty. If  residents have not moved out within the time allotted, their trailers may be towed.
