OACOMA PASSES RESOLUTION DEALING WITH CITY CAMPING: The Oacoma Town Board approved a resolution at a recent meeting establishing fines and penalties for any property owner who allows the use of recreational vehicles for dwelling purposes within city limits.

The penalty for allowing dwelling in a recreational vehicle, travel trailer or motorhome is $50 per day.

The board was compelled to approve the resolution due to an Oacoma property owner who is allowing a camper to use the property's utilities, despite being contacted by city officials.
