Mobile Home Park Tenant Questions? - Posted by John

I manage a 33 unit mobile home park and have been having problems with the same tenants time after time. Last night was again another problem that lead to an argrument with the tenants kids that are about 17 years old.
First let me back up to a prior problem. The same tenant let his sons girlfriend move into there home without advising the management, so I sent them a letter that stated that if the girlfriend is to remain after 90 days (with is the law here) that the monthly lot rent would be incresed to $200.00 from $150.00. There is 6 adults and one child living into this 3 bedroom 1 bath home.
Last night when I was conducting the winter road maintenance (snow plowing) these same tenants were throwing the snow back into the road. I would plow again and they would throw the snow back into the road. I then stopped and advised them that if they keep throwing the snow into the road that I would plow the driveway in, they stated that they had no where to throw the snow. I talking with the tenants son and girlfriend they told me that my rules were “just made up” and I can’t tell them who or how many people can either stay or move into there home.
The girlfriend had a real dirty talking mouth when speaking. I did advise them of a possible eviction if these problems keep occuring.
The bottom line is “what should I do” Should I have evicted the girlfriend from the park last night? Should I still sent a letter and evict her from the park? Should I evict the family from the park? Should I have called the police and made a report? Should I just overlook this problem until next time?
If you need more information please e-mail me. All experts please reply, I’m stumped at this time.
