Councilman Stephen Jennings says he has the votes for a revised version of his rental registration and inspection law. Mr. Jennings says he is proposing everyone have to register but only out of town landlords be subject to inspections. There is no reference in the Times article to fees. Nearby Oswego is now charging a three year fee of $150 per unit.
Also absent is the notion of equal protection under the law...I think it's the 14th Amendment...maybe its one of the other ones.....The City Attorney says the notion doesn't apply hear. That's an encouraging line of reasoning.
Now let's only write traffic tickets to out of towners and we'll be all set.
Local advocate for inspections, Glenn Curry, praised the Jennings proposal saying this "don't tread on me" nonsense has to go.
