Rutland Herald: Vote on town rental registry set

Reposted from the Rutland Herald, July 18, 2013. “SPRINGFIELD — Officials in Springfield are considering an ordinance that would set up a rental registry for property owners looking to occupy town buildings. Residents are scheduled to vote on the proposal Aug. 20, which would require property owners to get a certificate of occupancy from the local zoning office and a passing grade from the health officer for the buildings. Opponents say it adds unnecessary paperwork to property owners looking to rent units. Advocates call the ordinance an upgrade in enforcement for authorities to categorize all properties up for lease in Springfield. The Eagle-Times reported that a public hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 19 at the Springfield High School cafeteria.” Link to Rutland Herald Article
