APRIL 2017

 

Dear Tenants,                                        

 

Last week, we mailed a ninety (90) day Notice of Rent, Security and Sewer Increase to all tenants.  Desert Pueblo Mobile Home Park is increasing the monthly rent by $22.00, the monthly security by $3.00 and the monthly sewer administration charge by $10.73.  The last rent and security increase was on June 1, 2016.  Our vendors and/or service providers have increased their rates and on January 1, 2017, the State of Arizona raised the minimum wage from $8.30 to $10.00 per hour.  In addition, beginning in July 1, 2017 we will be required to provide sick time for all employees, based on the number of hours they work.  The sewer administration charge has not been raised since February 1993, but Pima County has continually raised the fee over the years.  Rent, security and sewer increases will take effect on July 1, 2017.  On the bulletin board in the Large Clubhouse, you will find a Mobile Home Rent Survey 2017 that compares the rent and security charges from other Tucson mobile home parks.  In addition, pet fees will not be waived from your rent bill when you leave the Park.  This is a monthly fee for any tenant who has a pet.

 

On February 27, 2017, Tucson Electric raised the Customer charge and Establishment charge and

Reestablishment charge.  Please check the bulletin board in the Large Clubhouse for the Tucson Electric rate sheets.

 

It’s that time of year once again, when many of our residents and our RV friends will be leaving the Park for the summer.  Please remember to visit the Park Office one week prior to leaving on vacation or leaving for the summer to fill out a Vacation Form and/or Utility Turn-Off Order Form.  Please do not turn off your utilities by yourself.  This is for the safety of all tenants.  It’s also your responsibility to have your yard maintained while you’re gone.  This includes weeds, leaves, trimming and the watering of plants and trees.  During the monsoon season, yards are messy after every storm.  A yard maintenance person must be scheduled to take care of your yard.  Please provide us with this information on your vacation form.  If you are mailing in your rental payment, please remember your rent, security and sewer charge are due on the 1st of each month and are considered late if received on the 6th.  After receiving your rent bill in the mail, you can send an additional check for any balance due. 

 

Last month, the back gate was repaired by Antech Corp. and has been operational since March 6th. This month, they will be installing new equipment, so your car can be identified by the back gate via an RFID (radio frequency identification device) affixed to the headlight of your car.  The back gate openers that you are currently using will become obsolete and your deposit will be refunded.  You will need to purchase an RFDI from the Park Office, in order to access the back gate.  We will notify the back gate users, when the new equipment is operational.

 

We are still replacing the Parks water lines from the main corporation valve to the mobile home shut-off valve.  If your water pipe looks rusty or is leaking, please contact the Park Office and the maintenance staff will evaluate if your pipe needs to be replaced immediately.  Sturgeon Electric is still servicing the electric pedestals throughout the Park.  The Park Office will contact you the day before your pedestal will be serviced, to verify that you will be home.  

 

If you have a problem with your utilities, such as, but not limited to, receiving natural gas through the meter, electricity fluctuations, a leaking water pipe or a clogged sewer, please contact the Park Office first and the maintenance staff will evaluate the problem.  If it is a park problem, we will fix the problem.  If it is your problem, the maintenance staff will let you know.

 

The security staff would like to remind you that vendors and/or guests will not be allowed in the Park unless you notify the security staff in advance or we are able to contact you via telephone.  The security staff will attempt to contact you when your vendor and/or guest arrives, but will be forced to turn them away if you do not answer your telephone.  Please contact us as soon as you are aware that a vendor and/or guest will need entrance and the number of days they will be coming into the Park.  In addition, attempting to call the tenants who did not notify the security staff in advance slows down the flow of traffic trying to enter the Park.  Please remind your family, guests, and/or vendors that our speed limit is always 15 MPH and be constantly aware of walkers and bikers on our streets.  As a safety reminder, to all those who are walking in the dark, please wear light colored clothing and carry flashlights.  If you are riding your bike at night, please have the proper lights on the front and rear of your bikes.  

 

Sincerely, 

Kim C. Wilkins 

Property Manager
