May 21st, 2012 Comments off

GoUpstate tells us the Spartanburg City Council in South Carolina is considering raising the fees on MHC owners to offset the cost of inspections so taxpayers are not subsidizing the expense of the inspectors. Other changes in the ordinance amending the original land management measure deal with lighting and setback for manufactured homes. At one time, learned, nearly 20 percent of South Carolina residents lived in manufactured housing.

March 1 and 2 will be Industry Days with workshops ranging from new financing options to attorney Kurt Kelly’s presentation on MHC management, billed tongue-in-cheek, as “Here’s How Me, Daryl, and My Other Brother Daryl Ran Our Park and Why We Got Sued So Many Times,” and his Top Ten dumb management ideas.
