Rental Inspection Program Goes Into Affect April 1

More than a year’s worth of effort to force safe living conditions in local rental properties will be realized on April 1.
 According to Laura Bedlan from the city of Fairbury  as of April 1, “No person shall rent, lease or occupy any rental dwelling unit that does not have a Certificate of Occupancy under the  rental ordinance from the City.” She added that a Certificate of Occupancy is not transferable between landlords or rental units and shall be valid for 12 months from the date of issuance.
 Bedlan said for the purposes of identifying landlords that will receive the initial application letter (sent by the City) the City will presume that properties occupied by people other than the owners are rental units.

Sen. Ebke Introduces Bill Allowing Conceal, Carry In Private Schools

Thirty-second district legislative Sen. Laura Ebke of Crete introduced a bill Monday (LB184) that would allow a permit holder to carry a concealed handgun in a private,denominational or parochial school, private career school or college.
 As presented, the permit holder would have to be a member of the school’s security personnel. Nebraska law says that churches can allow designated security personnel to carry a concealed handgun.  According to Ebke, some of those churches also have schools.
Despite sponsorship of LB184, the Fairbury native said she is not willing at this point to suggest the same designation for public schools.
 “I am not ready to  go down the path of public schools” she said. “There are so many unknowns there. But I do think that private institutions want to have conceal, carry and that’s their choice. They don’t have to  but we should at least allow them to.”
