Dubuque Mobile Home Park Owner Says Eviction Notices Sent by Mistake
Two dozen Dubuque County mobile home residents, some laid off from their jobs, were threatened with eviction in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, despite orders from Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds.
Company regional Vice President Dan Harnum told the Telegraph Herald that new notices have been delivered to all residents rescinding the prior eviction warnings. “It was mistake. It was an error,” Harnum said. “We know that most governors have called for halting evictions. These were computer-generated notices that would normally go out. It should never have happened and we’re making it right.”
