Sound Off: Rental registration
I see where Lawrence city commissioners approved an expanded rental registration program that will apply to all rental units in the city. How much will that new program generate in fees compared to how much it will cost to run?
According to a memo prepared for city commissioners, it is expected to cost $386,000 to expand the rental registration program. Based on the proposed fees of $10 for annual registration and $50 for each unit inspected, the program is expected to generate $383,700 in revenue, according to the staff memo.
