Town Bans Homeowners From Renting Their PropertySubmitted by zzbob on Thu, 01/02/2014 - 20:21
Property owners in Minnesota are challenging a first-of-its-kind ordinance restricting rental properties in the city of Winona.
The city, which is home to Winona State University, passed the ordinance in 2006 capping the number of rental properties on any block at 30 percent of the block’s total homes, according to Watchdog Minnesota. The law was meant to curb “excessive on-street parking, anti-social behavior and deteriorating housing conditions.”
But some believe it’s going too far.
