Currently I’m in due diligence phase on a San Antonio park. I was surprised to learn that the City of San Antonio has implemented a licensing requirement for all MH Parks inside the city limits. The requirement involves:
- Annual attendance to a Continuing Education course
- $35 fee per pad per year to cover Code Enforcement’s expense of on-going inspections of the park (appears they will go monthly or quarterly).
The question/concerns I wished to ask the group are:
- Are you aware of other cities with a similar annual fee/CE structure?
- I’m conflicted and would like your opinion as to whether:
(A) this is the cheapest management oversight an out of town owner can purchase for their park, or
(B) the city’s goal is to be openly hostile in an attempt to drive MH Parks out of the city and increase the Operating Expenses to a point that no longer makes financial sense?
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
