Landlord policy up for discussion Thursday in Grass Valley

After the “Good Landlord” policy was proposed at a Grass Valley City Council meeting in early February, concerns were raised.

A community discussion of the issue is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday in the Hullender Room on the lower level of City Hall at 125 E. Main Street.

Under the policy landlords could face fines or even jail time in extreme cases where their tenants find trouble with the law on a consistent basis. The proposal was brought before the council due to problem properties in Grass Valley which drew law enforcement repeatedly to deal with tenants’ issues. Officials say they introduced the proposal so landlords could help them to deal with problem tenants by giving them some accountability in the matter. Some landlords say the policy unfairly punishes them.

A town hall-style forum is expected at Thursday’s meeting and members of the public are welcome to attend.
