Arlington Estates always comes up with new and exciting ways of increasing lot rent. This past year they increased lot rent by $5.00 per month and cited a $1,500.00 water bill increase as the reason. "The water department has increased our annual bill by approximately $1,500.00 in an effort to offset this increase without cutting any services currently provided we will be increasing lot rent by $5.00 this year." In the same newsletter they also stated that there are currently 600 active sites in the park. You don't need to be very good at math to figure out this is a ripoff but here are the numbers.

5x600=3,000

3,000x12=36,000

36,000-1,500=34,500

That's a $34,500.00 annual profit, to top things off the water department sent out letters saying this was a temporary increase and may only last one year. This year the water department sent out another set of letters saying that they are not going to raise prices again however they are electing to keep the increase from last year. Arlington Estates put out in the newsletter that they are now increasing lot rent by $10.00 to offset another water bill increase of approximately $1,500.00 even though the water department told us all that it wasn't a new increase but the same one from the previous year as stated above. So that's an annual profit of not $34,500.00 but actually three times that for a grand total of $102,000.00 annual profit. I wonder how we will all get screwed next year...
