Board considering privilege licenses, annual inspection

Posted: Thursday, March 7, 2013 2:00 pm

The McComb city board is considering an ordinance that would require rental property owners to obtain a privilege license and have their properties inspected annually.

Urban planner Laurence Leyens of Vicksburg, with whom the city has contracted, spoke to the board on Tuesday. He noted that more than half of McComb’s residents rent property, rather than own.

    Rental property is a business - and it should be treated as such. We want our food to be safe in restaurants around town - we should want to be safe where we rent around town.
