A FEMA trailer

New Orleans — The era of the FEMA trailer — a symbol of the prolonged rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina — might be drawing to a close in New Orleans.

Citing the remaining 221 trailers as blight, New Orleans officials have told the last remaining residents to be out by the start of 2011 or face steep fines.

New Orleans once had more than 23,000 trailers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency since the August 2005 storm, and for many people still living in them, they are akin to permanent homes. These residents say they will find it hard to make the city’s deadline.

Edwin Weber Jr., 62, lives with his brother in a trailer crammed with stuff. He was seething at a “notice of violation” letter taped to his door shortly before Christmas.

The letter said he would be fined — up to $500 a day — unless he took “immediate action” to move out. He said the notice was “worthy of Ebenezer Scrooge himself.”
