WWU Students Again Call For Rental Inspections
According to an article in the student newspaper, the Western Front, there is a new student push for the licensing and inspection of Bellingham rentals. You can read the article by clicking here. Previously, the editorial board of the Western Front has come out in support of rental inspections. Click here to read the 2010 editorial. The Associated Students had already published one resolution supporting rental licensing and inspections. You can click here to read the 2010 A/S resolution. It is time for the city council to move on this important health and safety measure and create a robust rental licensing and mandatory inspection program. Let the city council know that you are concerned about the health and safety of our renters who occupy over 50% of the city's housing. You can reach the city council at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call on our new mayor, Kelli Linville, to push for an ordinance. You can reach her at email@example.com.
