Our Meeting with Jake

by

Elsa, Mary Sue and Jim had a meeting with Jake! He talked about all the changes he has made here in the community. The removing of all 48 homes that were bad, full of bugs and more bugs.The front entrance has change as we all see now. When the dirt dries out they will level and seed. They have brought in 3 new homes two on Lynn and one on Craig. New water meters have been installed! He plans of putting in two playgrounds and fix the basketball court. He plans to change the mail room and remove the walls and electric there, it is costing him $50.00 per month.

Our concerns were many starting with the fees,that have been imposed on us. The cost of reading the meters that haven’t been read since last year he said no. The pet fee was still an issue he said no. We also talked about the use of the old office for our purpose of meetings and other social gatherings he said no. He plans on fixing this up and sale. The homes that were sold by the past manager to up hold on her promises of fixing the problems. Many issues have been fixed. We tried to get a Grandfather clause for having our pets he said no. The damage to property when service was done to others ground damage to be fixed, he will look into this.

I brought up a House bill 422 that will be brought up real soon for a vote in Columbus to make it a law. That what ever they charge for utility’s is the same charge we get, as in the water bill for us. Electric, and gas for other communities. I have been asked by a Tim Johnson for Senator Mike Foley to help and give support and to send our concerns. I did ask for them to add a RENT CONTROL to that bill. Jake that won’t pass. I just smiled I know that there is 2.6 million people living in Manufactured home community’s. I will keep you all informed as it comes down for a vote. It is very important that we all stick together and support the PVI.

Jake had mention of having problems with homes being broken into, if caught he will send them to jail. He also ask us to get the neighborhood watch going again. He said the police will be advised to do what they can do.
