Building licensing on the books

ACORN, a local anti-poverty group, may score a big win in City Council this week as a 17 year-long struggle to license landlords comes to fruition.

On the 28th, Council will decide whether to make landlords more accountable by:

  • Making them register with the city
  • Track issues in the building
  • Have a notification board
  • Manage pests and garbage

The new laws will apply to all buildings with 10 or more units and 3 or more floors. It will improve on the current system by not being complaint driven.

ACORN  got its start in Weston in 2004, and has been pushing for landlord licensing since.
