Let's hope we have a long beautiful autumn season!
School is back in session! School is in full swing. Please watch for children walking thru the Park during the morning and afternoon hours. We have school bus stops as you drive into the entrance of the Park on both the east and wide sides of the property. Please NO SMOKING at the bus stop.
Highway Median- The highway 25 intersection is not safe to cross. Please take an extra comple minutes to walk to School Blvd to cross at the stoplights. The speed limit at our entrances has been increased to 60 mph so it is extremely dangerous for pedestrians and bikers. Please talk with your children about crossing the median. We have registered complaints with the City of Monticello and MNDot.
Recreational Vehicles: By October 1st, all boats, trailers and campers must be removed from yards and parking pads. Contact the office for storage options.
Online Payment System: We have mailed out a flyer to each household to access the online payment system. It is a free service for residents if they enter their checking account information but there is a fee for credit card use. We are hoping many residents will take advantage of this convenient service.
Tree Trimming- Please contact the office if you have any trees that need trimming. Remember, you may go ahead and trim your own trees as your feel comfortable. Please remember to be careful and exercise caution.
Heat Tape and Underbelly Inspection: It's that time of year already! It is being predicted that this winter could be severe. Please prepare ahead and plan to have your heat tape, insulation, sewer lines and underbelly inspected. The cost is typically around $40. If you need further work done, there is an hourly fee along with materials fee. There are a few individuals that are employed through Kjellbergs that will do these inspections, however they are NOT represented by Kjellbergs Park for these inspections. Kjellbergs Inc. is not responsible for their work, professionalism or etiquette during these visits. Contact Todd Goldenstein (952) 380-8890, Vincent Villacencio (763)245-0748 (se habla espanol) or Zachary Haupers (763)248-5540.
Community Cats and Dogs: As Fall and Winter approach, we ask that residents are vigilant about animal control. Please remember- The number #1 thing we can do to stop this issue is to NOT feed the cats or operate feeding stations. This interferes with a cat's natural ability to hunt. The cats become reliant on the feeding stations. The humane thing to do is not to feed the cats and to allow them to disperse. Remember also, that cats will begin to seek out warm places to nest and unfortunately this can result in them going under your home. Please check under your home for any nesting cats. Repair any skirting holes so that the cats may not go underneath your home. We also have been having many issues with dogs that are off leash. Dogs must be on leash and supervised. Dogs that are not supervised are a danger to themselves and other Park residents and animals. The Park is strictly enforcing penalties on pet violations.
Wild Cats and Dogs: Kjellbergs Park sits on the edge of large fields and we frequently get calls about wild cats such as cougars and bobcats and wild dogs such as coyotes and wolves. Many of these wild animals are attracted by cat feeding stations and outdoor feeding of birds, cats, dogs and rabbits. Wild cats and dogs can be easily scared off but if you feel threatened, contact the police or the Humane Society.
Home Sales- If you would like to sell your home, please give us a call. We can visit your home and run a valuation and make you an offer. We are very flexible with move out dates as well. Winter can still be a great time to sell mobile homes and we believe we can give good prices for your home. Mobile homes are holding their value very well. If you've been thinking about selling, give us a call. Plus- little known fact- Kjellbergs also has a Real Estate company that can serve Single Family homes as well. Contact Angie in the office with any questions!
Thanks so much to all of you! We love our Residents!
