2010 Edition 172 Fall city • roo klyncenter eCit ,*Zen Center Online Services z : CI WA U. • New Performance Based Rental Housing Program On April 1, 2010, a new performance based rental housing program was implemented. ' It is based on an ordinance amendment and performance criteria approved by the City Council. The new rental housing program incorporates a four -tier license system, • . based on the condition and management of the rental property. The license categories i • • , , . • are determined by the number of property code violations found during the initial or • renewal license inspection, along with validated excessive police nuisance calls as defined in the ordinance. Well- managed properties may receive a three year license, ' while substandard properties may only qualify for a 6 month provisional license. Various property management conditions such as elements of the Crime Free Housing Program apply to each license category. . • i i According to City Clerk Sharon Knutson, "The new rental program provides incentives #7 , • Ma for rental property owners and managers to maintain their property in a safe and livable condition, while providing consequences for those who do not properly manage ' their properties." The new ordinance reflects a unique combination of property management incentives, property improvement best practices, and enforcement tools. The licensee pays the same fee for a license, whether it is for 3 years, 2 years, 1 year or 6 months. The fee is based on the amount of services provided by the city in order to monitor and assist with mitigation plans, action plans and other license category ' requirements. The ordinance was a result of significant research, data analysis and input from City staff, City Council, residents, rental property • owners and the Minnesota Multi Housing Association, Housing Commission, and other community groups. It is one element of the City's Rental Housing Improvement Strategy.

Streets connect to lakes, rivers, and wetlands through storm sewer systems. As phosphorus is lost from leaves, rain water carries it into waters where it spurs excessive algae growth. Keep our water clear! Rake and sweep leaves from your street and storm drains. Compost leaves and grass clippings on location, or at a community yard waste collection site. Never dispose leaves in wetlands or water. Keep the street clean of other materials that contain phosphorus, such as grass clippings and eroded soil. Clean streets mean clean water!
