Establishing Our Association
November 10, 2011 Our first meeting. We discussed how to organize our group as
a formal organization.
April 16, 2012 The organization of the association was finalized, complete with
officers, by-laws, code of conduct, and committees.
May 22, 2012 Our Web-site was established.
Billy Strickland was retained as the lawyer for our association.
Mobile Home Park Owners.
Some of Our Accomplishments
~ Park owners considered it unfair to be taxed for garbage removal that they were
responsible for themselves. MHPO-DA formed a committee to fight "Garbage Fees," due to
the fact that park owners were pre-mandated to dispose of their park's household garbage.
We succeeded in getting the $45 tax per lot waived for the years 2011, 2012 & 2013. We
are still fighting for a permanent solution.
~ On January 22, 2013 we were successful in abolishing the unjust "15 Year" ordinance.
This was an ordinance that stated a mobile home that was 15 years old or older and did
not have electricity for 90 days could not be moved within nor into the county.
~ We tackled the problem of inconsistencies in Set-Up Inspections. We worked with the
County Manager to create a step-by-step Set-Up Guide in order to prevent additional
~ We found answers to many questions asked by our park owners. Such as...
1. Why are some park owners paying annual inspection fees and some are not?
2. Why are some park owners being required to do different things to pass their
inspections? (This was answered when we formed the Step-by-Step Set-Up Guide)
~ We have worked with the water department to make the process of short term hook-up, for
cleaning and repairs between renters, easier and less costly. Also, to save our water heaters from damage they have begun to put white flags by the meters that have been disconnected.
~ Mainstream and simplify the method of disposal for abandoned mobile homes.
~ Minimize "grace periods" in the eviction process.
~ How can we eliminate the "Service by Posting" method in Summary Ejection cases, so
that monetary judgments may be rewarded?
~ Establishing a rental office for renting or leasing property to service association members.
~ Workman's Compensation or Liability Insurance for park owners.
~ Group Insurance for park owners.
