ST. JOSEPH – The city of St. Joseph has  some decisions to make about housing rental policy before the end of the year.

In 2000, a city ordinance was created preventing homeowners from renting their homes unless they live there. Now, the city is seeking to examine the law and possibly overturn it in order to make renting easier on homeowners during tough economic times.

City Administrator Judy Weyrens says the policy has worked well for over a decade when it comes to keeping the city’s residential areas well-maintained.

Weyrens says common, frequent complaints before the ordinance was created included theft, littering and noise.

The city council has formed a 5-person committee, which is set to present a recommendation on whether or not to change the ordinance in about 3 months.
