Thu, Jul 13, 2017 – A group of approximately 65 residents at the Wagon Wheel and Valley Oaks mobile home parks met with city officials in the second of two forums at the Harrah Senior Center Wednesday designed to inform them of their rights and rental options after a new property management company from out of the area informed them of their plans to raise their rent and threatened evictions if a series of vague demands concerning cleaning and clearing of clutter go unheeded.

Drita Bronkey Resurfaces
Previously with Sierra Corporate Management

According to senior center Outreach Coordinator Priscilla Tarver, residents at both mobile home parks have been served notice by Drita Bronkey representing the new property management company BoaVida informing them of a yearly rent increase, beginning this November but have been given little direction and a limited amount of time to get their spaces up to specifications required by the new management.

Residents paying an average of $488 will see their rents go up by as much as $110 after the new management company took away a $50 yard discount. Tarver said Drita Bronkey sent out a generic letter to approximately 80 percent of residents in both parks informing them they only had 15 days to do major work on their properties including picking up of clutter and toys, cutting of lawns and other needed repair work.
