DELEGATION -

SUNSET ESTATES:

Mr. Ron Loudoun, owner of the Sunset Estates, Mr. Joe Therres, Manager of Sunset Estates and a number of residents living in Sunset Estates were in attendance at the meeting to discuss the increase to the mobile home license fees due to the implementation of the minimum tax.  Mr. Loudon indicated that the residents of Sunset Estates do not receive the same services as other citizens of the community and therefore, requested that a different amount of minimum tax be used to calculate the mobile home fees or that the amount of minimum tax be phased in over a period of time.  Mr. Therres indicated that the residents of the trailer park do not receive the following services:

1.         Snow Removal

2.         Street Sweeping

3.         Compost Pick-up

4.         They also pay for their own streetlights.

Mr. Louden indicated that he also had some problems with the sewer on this property and has incurred approximately $3,000.00 trying to rectify that problem.  He indicated that they have trailers in the R.M. of Blucher and that that municipality charges their mobile home fees based on a square footage rate rather than an assessment.  Their rate for a one thousand square foot trailer was $36.00 per month.  In Melville their flat rate for mobile home license fees is $27.00 a month.  Mr. Loudoun indicated that he wants to create more business in the community and encourage people to move here.

 

The Mayor thanked the delegation for attending the meeting.
