NJ reports from Pennsville, New Jersey township officials have unanimously voted to increase fess on manufactured homes in MHCs from $24 to $28 a month, collected by the MHC owner and then forwarded to the township. There are approximately 200 homes in the White Oaks and Southbridge communities in this town that borders the Delaware River in southwest New Jersey across from Wilmington, DE. MH owners also pay for fire and police service as well as trash pick-up. The revised fee schedule was on the agenda in Feb. of this year, but several MH residents objected and the ordinance was shelved. MHProNews has learned the ordinance will become effective July 1 and will run through June 30, 2013, at which time the fees may be increased again.
