Submitted by Citrus Heights resident Raj Reddy–
[RE: Citrus Heights council votes 4-1 to move forward with mandatory rental inspections; Aug. 12th] According to the City Council Staff Report for the proposed rental inspection program, page 181 states that there were 1300 code enforcement calls and on average 27% of the code enforcement calls were attributed to rental properties. So that means 351 calls were related to rental properties. What were the other 949 calls related to?
Since 27% represents a minority of calls, why are only the rental housing owners being forced to pay? Why not make everyone in Citrus Heights pay this code enforcement fee since the majority of calls are not rental housing related.
