The mayor of Hialeah, Esteban Bovo, recently spoke about the growing use of trailers (RVs) or caravans in the city, which has created what he described as a “sunset situation.”
The Cuban-American official clarified in an interview with the Enrique Santos program that it is an illegal practice to rent trailers as houses.
“They bought me a house in Hialeah, they have no intention of living here and they have an investment. They create a solar situation in our neighborhoods. I am your neighbor, you are protecting your investment and next door you have two RV’s parked. This is a reality now in Hialeah and a situation that needs to be addressed,” he said.
Bovo also stated: “If you have a vacation, I will congratulate you; But if you have it for an illegal activity where people live, you are creating a potential problem for the city and all your neighbors.
Since last month, Hialeah city government authorities have been considering a proposal to regulate the number and location of mobile homes.
The idea is to reduce the maximum number of these vehicles from three to one per house, create a registry, limit their size to 24 feet and prohibit them from parking in the back of houses.
TRAILER OR CARAVAN RENTAL IN HIALEAH
In the midst of the immigration crisis, the Mayor said that he understands everyone “who is trying to solve things for their family,” but “the illegal use, those who came to invest in Hialeah because they thought we were not interested, unfair, We also have to respect those who invested here to survive,” he said.
Here’s what some residents think about it:
- Hialeah and Miami Dade are like the neighborhoods of Havana … you have to look at how many cars are parked outside … there are no beds for many people.
- Due to high property prices, landlords and tenants have to work magic to pay the rent, so there are so many efficiencies and trailers because families can’t afford the high bills.
- And what is the root of that problem? High rental prices. That’s when they start.
