Schitt's Creek; what eactly do the Roses get out of owning the town?


I started watching reruns on Pop a few weeks ago spend part of my sick day yesterday binge-watched the rest of season 1 on Amazon. I like the show, but what exactly to the Roses (or rather David since it's technically his name on the deed) get out of owning Schitt's Creek (other than a free motel room)? What does "owning a town" even mean? They don't have any control over the municipal government (& the mayor has to approve any sale), and if they just own all of the land in the town wouldn't they get some kind of rental income? Or do they just own "municipal property" like the town hall and the roads"
