Rental housing licensing pilot will be studied
A special committee will look at the feasibility of a rental housing licensing pilot in only two wards. The motion from Coun. Terry Whitehead to pilot the idea in wards 1 and 8 was referred to the rental housing subcommittee. That body, formed after council opted against full apartment licensing in 2013, recently voted to explore voluntary landlord registration. But Whitehead and Coun. Aidan Johnson told colleagues the two efforts could be studied simultaneously.
