    BENNINGTON — A Bennington mobile home park that has been under pressure from the town and the state of Vermont to fix problems with its water supply is now facing a foreclosure complaint.

    The complaint against John Bushee Jr., owner of Sunset Farm Mobile Home Park, was filed April 30 in Bennington civil court by an attorney for People’s United Bank.

    The Bennington Banner reported the complaint said real estate taxes and a promissory note haven’t been paid, putting Bushee in default. The original promissory note was for $120,000.

    Bennington records say the park owes $31,839 in property taxes, including interest and penalties, going back to 2008.

    Lawyers in the case have declined to comment.

    Last year the Town of Bennington reached an agreement with Bushee to fix a problem with the water system that supplies the park. The agreement calls for Bushee to install a new filtration system. He needs a permit from the Department of Environmental Conservation Drinking Water and Groundwater Protection Division for the system, but as of late last month it had not been granted.
