MARION COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Earlier this week, a Marion County woman was facing a fine for allowing a friend who was homeless to stay on her property in an RV, but now that may change.

After seeing the story on Fox 12 Monday night, Marion County Board of Commissioners have asked the county code enforcement division to suspend enforcement.

Marion Co. Commissioners are asking authorities not to enforce the county ordinance that says you can't have someone living in an RV on you property for more than 120 days.

The board also plans to review that ordinance to see if any changes or updates need to be made, given the area's shortage of affordable housing.

A county task force is also looking into possible solutions to help the area's homeless and low income residents looking for housing.
