Scottville: Moving toward rental ordinance

May 19, 2018 GMT

SCOTTVILLE — There will be a public hearing Monday for an ordinance to repeal and replace a chapter from the existing structure code for the City of Scottville which, according to City Manager Amy Williams, is a necessary step toward adopting a city-wide rental ordinance.

“This is an Ordinance needed to move forward with ultimately adopting a rental ordinance for our city,” Williams said, adding that the city currently uses the existing structures code to for issues regarding the inspection and regulation of rental properties.

“We are moving to the International property maintenance code which is standard for rental ordinances,” she said.

Williams said City Attorney Tracy Thompson has prepared an amendment that will be read at Monday’s city commission meeting. Following the public hearing, the amendment will be advertised for 30 days before being brought back to the commission for approval in June.

Second Street update

Repairs to East Second Street sustained during the water main replacement project of 2016 and 2017 are finished, and Williams will provide an update to city commissioners on Monday.

“The contractor has completed the work on Second Street to pave the area that was torn up as part of the water project we completed over a year ago,” she said.
