Council changes rental permit fees

As the city Codes Department prepares to enforce the rental permit law, the Common Council voted Tuesday evening to make some changes to its fee schedule.
In July, a ruling by Supreme Court Justice Phillip R. Rumsey lifted an injunction on the law put in place more than two years ago when a lawsuit filed by landlords challenged its constitutionality.
Three changes were proposed by city Director of Code Enforcement Bill Knickerbocker, but the council only acted on two: removing the early registration fee of $60 — which was discussed at its last meeting — and enacting a $100 appeal fee for variances.
The council tabled a vote on the third proposal that would allow the Code Enforcement Division to charge what is to be called a complaint inspection violation fee, which Knickerbocker explained would be charged if the department received a complaint which proved to be true.
