Trenton Council Approves Ordinance to Increase Landlord Fees

"[Trenton] City Council voted [on October 17th] to increase housing inspection fees despite objections voiced by a local landlord", reports Times of Trenton journalist Jenna Pizzi.

"The ordinance will increase the annual fees to licence non-commercial structures from $75 to $90 per structure with a $25 cost for each unit in the building. The measure changes the fees for commercial buildings from $100 per building to $120 with a charge of $25 per unit."

"Councilwomen Marge Caldwell-Wilson, Phyllis Holly-Ward and Kathy McBride voted against the measure. Inspections Director Cleveland Thompson proposed changing the city’s policy for a housing code compliance certificate to a flat fee of $200, rather than the current fee structure which ranges from $125 to $225."
