WHAT IT IS

The city council finds that the establishment of a residential rental business license and inspection program for rental units is necessary to protect the public health, safety and welfare by ensuring the proper maintenance of such housing, by identifying and requiring correction of substandard housing conditions and by preventing conditions of deterioration and blight that could adversely impact the quality of life in the city of Aberdeen.

(Ord. 6634 § 2, Added, 12/12/2018)

WHAT IT ISN'T

The inspector will not be going through your personal belongings.
