DeKalb housing ordinances get final OK
DeKALB – The city of DeKalb gave final approval to its set of housing ordinances Monday night, setting the fees and staffing levels necessary to carry them out.
The city will hire a mixture of full-time and part-time staff to implement the various housing ordinances, which include measures such as annual registration of landlords and requiring all tenants to not commit illegal activities in their apartments.
To fund the four staffers (three of which are full-time, and two are inspectors), the city will charge rental properties $50 a building and $15.24 a rental unit for three or more units. This would amount to $227,000 in fees. The city will chip in $57,000 of its own money, bringing the total cost of the program to $284,000.
