I guess the Constitutionality of searching landlords leaky toilets stands

Grumpy Councilor blames it on the ‘Fake’ City Charter

Seems councilor Erpenbach had a change of heart, and decided that searching un-registered rental properties and charging them for it, probably doesn’t pass the smell test, OR the Constitution test. Seems the DRAFT ordinance has a couple of changes (DOC: rental-register). It seems the ‘Search and Destroy’ portion of the DRAFT ordinance has disappeared.

It would be practically impossible to prove a property is unregistered. It would cost more than revenue from fees to enforce this ridiculous requirement. I don’t have rental property here and wouldn’t. City code enforcement harassment prevents profit. If I did rent, I’d be proud to not register. There are so many jobs here because nobody can afford to rent due to expensive city controls.
