Mobile Homes/full time Residents Rules
Home Park Rules Park Rules
1. Park rules must be adhered to and will be enforced. Local town ordinances and laws, all state and federal laws, as well as any ordinance, which affects the health and safety of other residents, must be followed.
2. New tenants will be offered the opportunity to sign a lease for a minimum of one year. The lease assures each tenant abiding by the conditions contained therein the right to remain for the term. Any current resident who wishes to sign a lease should notify the park owner or manager in writing before January 1, otherwise the tenancy will remain on a month to month basis.
3. Park owner is responsible to maintain all water supply and septic facilities. Park owner is also providing basic refuse storage and disposal at one point in the park (specifically, the Dumpster on the south side of the Rec. hall) Garbage must be in clear plastic bags. Recycling must be done according to county regulations. Those wishing to dispose of appliances, please check with the landlord before leaving item. With furniture, the materials (i.e. metal and wood) must be separated. For tires, car parts, paint, chemicals, etc. tenants must make their own arrangements. Leaves are to raked and piled along the driveway and will be picked up by the county on specified dates which they will provide.
4. Any change in tenancy or ownership is subject to approval by park Manager and owner. The rented premises may not be sub-rented or subleased.
