POMEROY — The village of Pomeroy is now investigating those who have failed to register and pay the proper rental fees for the 2014 calendar year, according to a press release from the village office.
Rental property owners who have failed to register and pay the proper rental feels for the 2014 year may do so at the Pomeroy Police Department at 660 E. Main St., Suite A, in Pomeroy.
Each rental unit will require a mandatory annual inspection. An inspection fee of $30 must be paid at the Pomeroy Police Department. This permit will be renewed annually for each rental unit, and if there is a change of tenants within the same year the annual $30 permit fee will still apply. Rental properties containing multiple units must have a separate permit for each unit.
The permit fee for properties consisting of four or more units will be $25 per unit. Properties being sold by land contract will be subject to the same requirements as a rental property.
Rental property owners who fail to do so may face charges and also be issued a summons to appear in court for failure to comply with the Pomeroy Village Housing and Building Code Ordinance 662 (rental properties), which was established Dec. 15, 2006.
