Rules and Regulations in our Park / 2017
for all tenants, shareholders and leaseholders.

 

This is your home – these regulations are to protect you and your home and to make your Campground and Mobile Home Park a quiet, safe and comfortable place to live and have fun. These regulations will be strictly enforced.  Any violations will be addressed by the Park Manager and will be handled according to the policy regarding failure to comply, which is attached

  1.  CARE AND HEALTH:  Florilow, Inc. dba Florilow Oaks Campground and Mobile Home Park, does not provide facilities for persons who are not self-sufficient in their living arrangements. All residents who become temporarily or permanently unable to be self-sufficient are asked to make arrangements for their own care and welfare. Persons residing in the park who, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, are not able to care for themselves will be asked to make living arrangements elsewhere.   It is imperative that each resident have emergency contact information on file in the office.

  2. COMMUNICATIONS:  Occupants, owners and tenants who receive telephone or fax messages at the office will be notified on the bulletin board and the messages held at the office.

You may use the copy machine or fax machine for a small fee.

POLICY REGARDING FAILURE TO COMPLY
WITH PARK RULES AND REGULATIONS

When an individual has failed to comply with Park Rules and Regulations, they will be sent a letter signed by the Park Manager and Board President advising them of the matter that needs correcting, and offering them an opportunity to meet and discuss the matter.  If no response within 15 days, or if the hearing with the shareholder is unsatisfactory, the matter will be brought to the board for action.

If the violation is not resolved, the Board may decide to impose a twenty-five  dollar ($25) fine and interest of 10% for each month that the matter is not resolved.  Additionally, the individual will lose voting rights until the issue is resolved.  If the fine is not paid, the amount due will be deducted from shares redeemed at the time of sale.
