JANUARY 2019

Dear Tenants,

 

I hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with your family and friends!  Thank you for the lovely Christmas Cards and Thank You Cards we received during the holiday season.       

 

Included with your Rent Statement is a ninety (90) day Notice of Rent, Security, Sewer, Pet and Storage Increase.  You will be gives two copies of the Increase Notice, one to sign and leave at the Office and one for your records.  Desert Pueblo Mobile Home Park is increasing the monthly rent by approximately 5%, the monthly security fee by $2.00, the monthly sewer administration charge by $.37, the pet fee by $2.50 and the storage fee by $7.50.  The last rent and security increase was on July 1, 2017.  Our vendors and/or service providers have increased their rates and on January 1, 2018, the State of Arizona will raise the minimum wage from $10.50 to $11.00 per hour.  In addition, we are required to provide sick time for all employees, based on the number of hours they work.  Rent, security, sewer, pet and storage increases will take effect on April 1, 2017.  On the bulletin board in the Large Clubhouse, you will find a Mobile Home Rent Survey 2018 and a RV Storage Facilities Survey 2018 that compares the rent, security, sewer, pet and storage fees from other Tucson mobile home parks and storage facilities.  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.

 

The office staff has informed me that on a daily basis, the Post Office returns a large amount of mail to the sender, because space numbers are not listed on the front of envelopes or packages.  Please inform your family, friends and vendors to write your space on all correspondence.  

 

We currently have an on call Security position available for various shifts.  If you’re interested, please contact our Chief of Security, Judy Johnson, Tuesday through Thursday, 6 AM to 3 PM at the guard house.

 

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.

 

During the cold weather, please do not use towels, rugs, sheets, blankets, wearing apparel or laundry of any description to protect your trees, shrubs or plants from the frost.  This rule is listed in Section 4.Landscaping.  Home Depot and Lowes sells covers that are made especially to protect your plants.    

 

The maintenance staff is having a problem with dog debris accumulating on the small clubhouse lawn and large clubhouse Ramada area.  The dog debris is sticking to the maintenance staff shoes and the lawn mower blades.  Please be kind to the maintenance staff and clean up after your dog.  In addition, the maintenance staff would like to remind you the small pool is closed December 1st through March 15th. The large pool hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., November 1st to March 15th. 

 

Arapahoe Tree Surgeons are currently trimming the trees throughout the Park.  Please stop by the Park Office and check the master tree list to verify if your tree will be trimmed or removed.  If your tree is not on the list, please fill out a tree request at the Park Office.  As a reminder, we do not maintain or trim fruit trees, Arborvitaes, Italian Cypress, Mexican Palms, cactus or bushes.

 

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.  

 

I’m looking forward to all of us having a great year in 2019!

 

Sincerely,
Kim C. Wilkins,
Property Manager
