MHP Successful in Century Link Hearing One Mesa manufactured housing community was taken before the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) for refusing to bury cable laid by CenturyLink to repair a resident's phone line. This has been an issue in our communities for several years. The community owner does not own the phone lines and does not get any reimbursement from CenturyLink for burying the cable, but CenturyLink will no longer bury it and is telling community residents that it is the park's responsibility. When the community refused to bury it or have the wires running across the ground, the resident filed a case. The ALJ decided in favor of the community. MHCA attorney Michael Parham represented the community, and Executive Director Susan Brenton testified on behalf of the community.

What is MHCA?
Manufactured Housing Communities of Arizona (MHCA) is a non-profit organization created in 1947 to protect and promote the interests of manufactured housing community owners.
MHCA does this in many different ways, including tackling legislative and legal issues, educating community owners and managers, and working to improve Arizona’s manufactured housing communities.
Through numerous publications and educational opportunities, MHCA offers owners and managers the resources they need to successfully operate their communities. MHCA is governed by a volunteer Board of community owners who are annually elected by the membership. The Board meets throughout the year to determine MHCA’s position and actions on numerous issues.
