Multi-Family housing inspection adopted

Members of the Mount Vernon City Council began implementing a rental housing inspection program with the adoption of an ordinance requiring inspections of multi-family units and apartment buildings.

The ordinance calls for a Certificate of Occupancy (COO) inspection for the units at the time the residence becomes vacant or when any utility service is shut off or transferred to a new name. For more details about this ordinance, see the March 15 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
