Punishes All Landlords
I am a Fairbury landlord writing in protest to the new city ordinance requiring a yearly inspection of all rental properties at, of course, a fee to the landlord. I am told that it was initiated by the council for the safety and sanitation of renters. I and many others believe that the motive of the council is to eliminate some of the rental units in Fairbury, in essence, a clean up campaign.
I will certainly agree that there are some unsightly rental properties here but this new ordinance punishes all of us for the negligence of a few. We are told that this yearly inspection will not be inconvenient. That is ridiculous statement. First off, consider the ratio of one inspector to the many rental properties in this town. Landlords would be sacrificing income while waiting for an inspection.
