December 01,
Earlier this
year, Mayor Jeff Gahan and Building Commissioner David Brewer urged the City
Council to pass a rental registration program that requires landlords to
register any properties within the city limits that will be rented to tenants.
The Rental Housing Ordinance will increase communication that will help prevent
the deterioration of residential housing, assist in compliance of minimum
rental housing standards, improve safety for residents, protect the character
and stability of residential neighborhoods, and preserve and increase property
values throughout the city.

information about this history of this ordinance, please see here:
