Paper Trail: Rental registration and inspections

From staff reports

A working group appointed by the city council and led by San Marcos police Assistant Chief Lisa Dvorak and City Marshal Ken Bell is considering a range of options for compelling landlords to assume more liability for disruptive or dangerous tenant behavior.

Chief among the group’s efforts is development of a registration and inspection system for rental property owners in the city limits. Bell presented basics for such a system at a Sept. 18 council meeting. Now the group is circulating a draft ordinance.

  1. It’ s about time! Property owners should be held accountable. Since, it seems, mayor Narvaiz wants to play ball with the big leagues , and TSU could care less where the students live, it is the right thing to do now.
