LIMA — A local campground has until April 1 to fix numerous violations before its next inspection by the Allen County Health Department.
The campground, owned by the Fraternal Order of the Orioles Nest 173 and located at 6130 N. Defiance Trail, needs to correct violations that include dead trees that could cause danger to campers and not enough signage, according to Bill Kelly, director of environmental health.
The Allen County Health Board voted for the next inspection date on Friday, which members feel is enough time to fix the problems. If the violations are not corrected by the next inspection, the board can either give more time to correct the violations or revoke its license, according to Kelly.
The campground has 74 sites, but only five are currently occupied, Kelly said. The board agreed to allow the campers already at the campground to stay but said no new campers can come.
