Directing the City Manager to establish a committee to ascertain the level of substandard housing conditions of rental properties in Kansas City.

 

WHEREAS, forty-two percent of the residents of Kansas City, Missouri, live in rental dwellings; and

 

WHEREAS, inadequate maintenance of some of those dwellings has a negative impact on public health, safety and welfare of all Kansas Citians; and

 

WHEREAS, other communities have successfully implemented landlord licensing programs to regulate the conditions of rental dwellings; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City Manager is hereby directed to establish a committee to ascertain the level of substandard housing conditions of rental properties in Kansas City, to study initiatives utilized in other cities to regulate the residential rental business, and to propose a program to be implemented in Kansas City to improve the condition of substandard rental housing. The committee shall have members representing landlords, tenants and neighborhood organizations to ensure a well-balanced perspective is achieved.
