Then read:

 

 

MHI was no where to be found in this matter. Nor were the state execs.  We asked, locals answered. The facts are what they are.

In about 2 days of mostly electronic efforts, the city went from banning manufactured homes, to reversing themselves.

On or off the record, I’d like your reaction. Email for our accuracy in handling.

Please note that there are several BCCs, including MHI members. We plan to do a write up, perhaps as soon as midafternoon, so a prompt reply is welcome.

If you can’t reply by then, and we publish first, you or MHI are welcome to provide a reaction to our reports, for the record.

Thank you,

Tony

To our professional readers, investors and those Cavco Industries (CVCO) pursuing plaintiff’s attorneys. Ponder this question. MHI purportedly postures action, but where is the evidence of their results?

Read this local media report first, then read the article which outlines some of the motivations that sparked the dramatic reversal of the city officials. That tells a tale that should remind manufactured home industry pros a similar reveal to what occurred in Washington, IN last year. The city officials are quoted on-the-record in the linked article above.

If MHProNews’ publisher – in concert with aligned nonprofits – could accomplish a dramatic reversal in two days of mostly electronic communications, why can’t MHI routinely do the same?

MHProNews looks at the facts, considers the sources, and follows the evidence. Earlier last year, and for years before, MHI routinely replied promptly to all of our inquiries. But since we’ve spotlighted various problems and concerns, they’ve gone silent. Why? If the facts are on their side, why not make offer a cogent explanation?

May 5th, 2015 Comments off

manuf home  plantation on the lake  credit  calimesa califRick Robinson of the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) has informed MHProNews that the city council of El Monte, California, county of Los Angeles, on March 30, 2015 approved Urgency Ordinance No. 2852 to extend the existing manufactured home (MH) rent stabilization for an additional three months, through July 3, 2015.

On April 29, 2015 the city mailed notices seeking feedback from community owners, managers, residents and other interested parties regarding the rent stabilization issue. On May 4 the city was to have conducted another meeting with community owners and other interested parties for their input.

In the meantime, the city staff has been instructed to formulate regulatory options for rent stabilization and discuss the issue with stakeholders. Since the current measure expires July 3, it is anticipated the El Monte City Council will approve an updated ordinance by June 2, 2015. ##
