Changing the Borough's Rental Rules

Say what you want about Pottstown, but the folks who take care of the landscaping around borough hall are doing one hell of a job. This was my view as I walked to the meeting and I have to say it was very pleasant.

About a dozen landlords attending a meeting held Wednesday night in Pottstown Borough Hall to brief them about the changes underway in the borough's rental ordinances.

Chief among these is the switch to a new inspection schedule of every two years for rental properties.

But it will take 30 months for the borough to shift to this system, so until 2018, the borough will also (within reason, depending on the last inspection) conduct inspections when tenants change, as is currently done.

The landlords had a lot of questions, but generally seemed pleased at the effort by Licensing and Inspections Director Keith Place to reach out and explain the changes, and listen to their concerns.

Here are the Tweets from last night's meeting.
