While traveling through Howland recently, a large decorative wall being built for a “Welcome To Howland” sign. As you traveled through the city of Girard, you would noticed a very attractive wall already built and landscaped with a “Welcome to Girard” sign. A picture of this is shown below. Upon inquiry, I understand that after several years of disruption on Belmont Avenue, which is finally coming to a conclusion, there are no plans for a “Welcome to Liberty Township” sign. The Liberty Business Association members discussed this omission at our last meeting and we find it difficult to understand and accept this decision on the part of ODOT.

The population of Liberty Township is greater than Girard and the property, income and taxation rates paid by our residents are also greater. I strongly believe that we should be given the same consideration as our neighbors. I ask you to email Pat Ungaro, our Administrator at the eaddress given below and ask him to investigate this situation and advocate on behalf of our community for a Welcome sign for us. Please inundate Pat with mails so that he can have a basis for his request. Look at the sign below and tell me we do not deserve the same. I am counting on all who receive this letter to make their wishes known. Please do it NOW!

Our new Bill HB 487

September 5, 2012

AT LAST: Ohio Governor signed HB 487. AMHRO has always shared that some laws needed changed for manufactured home owner residents in Ohio. This bill becomes effective 12/1/2012. It reads as follows:
MANUFACTURED HOMES COMMISSION (MHC) — Ohio HB 487
• Transfers regulatory authority related to manufactured home parks from the Department of Health and the Public Health Council to the Manufactured Homes Commission.
• Replaces the member of the Commission who represents the Department of Health with a member who is a registered sanitarian.
• Requires the board of health to issue a report of the inspection of a flood event at a manufactured home park to the Commission.
• Creates the Manufactured Homes Commission Regulatory Fund and requires certain fees to be deposited into that fund.
• Diverts certain fees from the General Operations Fund to the Occupational Licensing and Regulatory Fund for the administration and enforcement of the Manufactured Home Park Law.
• Requires the Commission to develop a policy regarding the maintenance of records for any inspections and specifies that those records are public records.
• Removes the requirement that a manufactured home owner and park operator jointly obtain the permit required for alterations, repairs, or changes to a damaged manufactured home in a flood plain.
• Establishes adjudication procedures for violations of the Manufactured Home Park Law.
• Allows licensed real estate brokers and salespersons to broker manufactured homes without a manufactured housing broker license.
• Prohibits a person who is not licensed as a manufactured housing dealer from purchasing a manufactured home directly from the manufacturer.
Licensing and inspection of manufactured home parks and the Transfer of regulatory authority over manufactured home parks
• The bill transfers the authority to do all of the following from the Department of Health and the Public Health Council to the Manufactured Homes Commission:
• Adopt rules governing the review of plans, issuance of flood plain management permits, and issuance of licenses for manufactured home parks, as well as the location, layout, density, construction, drainage, sanitation, safety, and operation of those parks, and notices of flood events concerning, and flood protection at, those parks;

• Compel a county prosecuting attorney, city director of law, or the Attorney General to prosecute to termination, or bring an action for injunction against a person, that has violated Manufactured Home Park Law.
• The bill requires the Commission to adopt rules regulating manufactured home parks not later than December 1, 2012. After adopting the rules, the Commission immediately must notify the Director of Health. The rules governing manufactured home parks adopted by the Public Health Council under current law will remain in effect in a health district until the Commission adopts the required rules.
• The bill prohibits a board of health of a city or general health district from invoicing or collecting manufactured home park licensing fees for calendar year 2013.
• The bill also revises who may inspect the installation, blocking, tie-down, foundation, and base support systems of manufactured housing in a manufactured home park.
