District 2

 

AAMHO Annual Meeting – February 11, 2017

 

District 2 Director’s Report:

District 2 is another area without a Director.  This area includes portions of Apache Junction, Gold Canyon, Casa Grande and Superior. To help cover the areas that are lacking representation AAMHO team members from the Board including Jerry Shumate, Eileen Green, Kelly Yielding and Rose Misener have come together to handled calls and concerns as needed by individuals.  It is important to note as well that although District 2 doesn’t have a Director, Don Bremer our Vice-President has stepped up to work with other District Directors to cover this area.

District 2 has a total of 72 parks and is broken down with 36 active parks and 35 inactive parks.  As of December 31, 2016 the total membership is 767.

There was one District meeting for this area in 2016 that was held at Palmas Del Sol East in Apache Junction in October.   The area has had more than 3 hearings at the Office of Administrative Hearings that included issues about Rules and Regulations, delivery of notices, failure to maintain by landlord, failure to send correct notices regarding rent increases, and failure to advise resident, according the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, about Relocation Fund when rent increase was more than the 10% plus CPI requirement. The Petitioners in at least one of the parks has been able to provide documentation, photos, and testimony to receive decision, by the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), in their favor.

This district carries the second highest membership numbers in the state at the end of the 2016 year. Can you imagine what could happen if there was a Representative working this area on a regular basis.

Anyone interested in doing some volunteer work for this area should contact the office and let Connie know so that she can get your name to us.  We would really appreciate any help, even if it is only as an Associate Director to start.
