Since May, residents have met with members of the city council, the city attorney and the city manager to put together a new ordinance requiring the licensing of landlords and rental units and better oversight by the city of rental units.
Under the new ordinance, landlords will be required to acquire a Landlord Business License from the city. Landlords will also be required to register rental units with the city, indicating the maximum number of tenants allowed. The number of tenants allowed will be based on the International Property Maintenance Code, which sets occupancy based on bedroom sizes. Annual registration will be required.
