Landlord registration program could be eliminated

Statement from Alderman Nik Kovac June 20, 2013

By - Jun 20th, 2013 04:39 pm

A bill (AB 183/SB179) now moving through the state Legislature would eliminate the City of Milwaukee’s landlord registration program – a highly successful program that has helped to resolve problems and hold landlords accountable when they have problem tenants or are negligent in maintaining a property. The bill has already passed the Assembly, has had a hearing in the Senate, and could be voted out of the Senate committee any day now.

I urge all concerned residents, as well as neighborhood associations and other stakeholders, to contact the members of the Senate Insurance and Housing Committee to ask them to support amending the bill to allow the city to maintain the landlord registration program. Please let them know how important the program is to the city and your neighborhood.

The committee members are:

Senator Frank Lasee (Chair) 608-266-3512
Sen.lasee@legis.wisconsin.gov

Senator Luther Olsen 608-266-0751
Sen.olsen@legis.wisconsin.gov
