The Spruces Mobile Home Park flooded during Hurricane Irene and displaced about 300 residents.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The lawsuit intended to clarify the future of the Spruces Mobile Home Park has again been continued.

The park's owners, Morgan Management, sued the state attorney general and the town seeking eight orders that will help dictate the park's future. The park flooded during Hurricane Irene and displaced about 300 residents.

The case has been pushed back another 90 days, until July 17.

The case was originally scheduled to go to court on Dec. 6, 2011. It was pushed back to Dec. 13, 2011, delayed again until Jan. 17 and continued then until April 17. The residents were later added as a defendant.

According to the town's website, the continuance still needs court approval but that is "likely to be granted." The company's eight orders include having residents inform them if they intend to abandon their property and have residents remove their abandoned trailers in 30 days.

The company wants further infrastructure work to be halted until a plan is in place remove the abandoned homes as well as seeking to condense the park. Additionally, Morgan Management wants the town to remove those residents living in condemned homes. It also wants a reprieve from state pressure and to have residents to remove "non-ordinary" trash.

Many of those issues have already been addressed and the parties are seeking a settlement.

Below are the court documents from the case.
