City Council-Mobile Home Park Predatory

The City Council Monday voted to add more protections for mobile home communities to the list of things it would like to see the state legislature prioritize in 2020. First Ward Councilman, Brett Shaw, says the council requested action from the state to strengthen the Iowa code to better protect mobile home park residents. Two years ago a national company known as Impact Communities bought the Table Mound Mobile Home Park. Since then residents say their rent has increased and other fees have been introduced. Shaw created a list of state code changes which include limiting rent increases. He believes landlords should be limited in the number of rent increases they can give in a year, and be capped at how much they can increase rent.
