The Ludington city council will be having a meeting tonight to discuss with city landlords a new proposal that would conduct inspections of the cities rental properties. Inspections would be on a three year cycle with a $75 charge for an initial and a follow up inspection. This is among other clauses and stipulations that caveat the proposal the council has been wanting to implement for years. John Shay is holding the meeting tonight for landlord feedback before the council takes a vote on the proposal. The meeting is tonight at 330 pm in city hall.
There are around 1900 homes built before 1939 in the city of Ludington. Among other things, the new ordinances would ensure the minimum standards for the rental dwelling are according to the Ludington Property Maintenance Code.
