Nebraska USDA Rural Development State Director Maxine Moul presented a certificate to Kathy Kohle, Property Manager with Stuart Village Manor Apartments. Kohle was recognized for her accomplishments as a 2015 Honorable Mention Property Manager of the Year. The apartments are owned by Stuart Village Manor Inc. a local non-profit entity established in 1970.
“Kathy Kohle and the board members, many of whom are the original members, have done a tremendous job in developing and promoting their community,” said Multi-Family Housing Program Director Paul Bartlett, USDA Rural Development. “Kathy has been wonderful for the USDA staff to work with over the past 19 years as she takes great pride in her position and the tenants have been very pleased with the support provided to them.”
The Stuart Village Manor Inc. received USDA funding to build a duplex in 1978, a four-plex in 1984, and added another four-plex in 1996. A new duplex was recently constructed in 2014 and funded by the Nebraska Department of Economic Development. Kohle not only manages the four properties but also works for the Village of Stuart. The properties are continuing to be updated and are in very good condition. Recent upgrades include adding Direct TV for tenant use, a new property sign, an accessible centralized mailbox and newly acquired storage shed.
