KRONENWETTER, Wis (WSAU) A troubled mobile home park goes up for bank auction in a week, and it's unclear if anyone is prepared to bid on the property. It's more uncertainty for the people still living there.

Anchor Bank foreclosed on the Bouche Mobile Home Park earlier year. They hired a management company to oversee the land, which was a condition for keeping a permit in place. But many of the rental trailers at the site are uninhabitable and are now empty. Only six families still live on the site, and they may have to move.

The value of the land is listed at $575,000. An on-line bank auction is scheduled for September 30th, with a minimum bid of $225,000. Some earlier bids have been rejected because they were too low. Most of the interested parties were not interested in keeping the land as a trailer park -- some were interested in developing warehouse space or subdividing the land for private homes.
