The owner of a Hinsdale mobile home park faces a $2,000 fine from the Cattaraugus County Board of Health for failure to provide a water source.

The Hillview Village mobile home park, owned by John Reyes-Guerra of Canandaigua, contains about 120 units.

The county Health Department cited Reyes-Guerra earlier this year for failure to perform water tests on the existing water source and for failure to provide a second back-up source.

Reyes-Guerra failed to show up at a hearing on the matter, held at the Health Department.

The Board of Health, meeting this week to consider violations of the county's Sanitary Health Code, imposed a $2,000 fine due by Oct. 17 and $200 due a day thereafter.

Failure to pay the fines will result in an order to close the park beginning Nov. 30 and continuing through Feb. 20 until all the units are moved out.

In another case, Charles Stiles of Cattaraugus was fined $50 for purchasing property in New Albion that did not have a county inspection of the water and sewage supply system.

Georgia D. Schneider of East Otto was fined $50 for allowing a sewage disposal system to be constructed on her property without obtaining a county permit.

Robert Whippo of Pines Trailer Park in Weston Mills was fined $100 for failing to monitor a community water supply in the park.

Whippo was fined another $100 for failing to monitor a community water system in the Winchester Estates mobile home park in Hinsdale, which he also owns.

George Smith of Orchard Park was fined $100 for failing to remove lead paint on a house and garage at 145 Commercial St. in Gowanda.

Deborah Rakaska of the Mountain Top Inn in Olean was fined $300 for operating without a county permit.
