|S.F. No. 1269 - Manufactured Housing (Delete-Everything Amendment SCS1269A-3)|
|Author:||Senator David Tomassoni|
|Prepared by:||Joan White, Senate Counsel (651/296-3814)|

Section 1 modifies the fee statute, by allowing a park owner to collect a fee of no more than $1 per month to cover the cost of participating in the relocation trust fund.
Section 2 strikes language requiring the owners of manufactured homes to make annual payments of $12 to the park owners, as the new language in section 1 requires monthly $1 payments, and strikes language relating to the process of collecting and depositing the relocation trust fund payment. This section requires the Commissioner of Finance to annually assess each manufactured home park owner $12 for each licensed lot in the park, and deposit the payments in the Minnesota manufactured home relocation trust fund. The commissioner is required to prepare and distribute to park owners a letter explaining the collection, and other valid information. The park owner may recoup the cost of the assessment with a monthly fee of no more than $1, and park owners may adjust payment for lots that are vacant or otherwise not eligible for contribution to the trust fund, and deduct that amount from the assessment, accordingly. Further, this section requires the court to award a prevailing plaintiff reasonable attorney fees, court costs, and disbursements.
