Ordinance gives landlords more eviction grounds

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Evansville officials are trying to create better neighbors with a proposed ordinance that would require landlords to eliminate nuisance activities within 72 hours or evict the offending tenants.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports (http://bit.ly/1v4QpY ) the ordinance is aimed at pushing landlords to rid themselves of tenants who show patterns of criminal or nuisance behavior. It also could cover situations such as noise, abandoned appliances, open burning or use of fireworks.

City landlords and community officers with the Evansville Police Department helped craft the ordinance. It is likely to face a vote in June.

The measure allows police to initiate a complaint of nuisance activity in a rental property for misdemeanor offenses. City council members say the measure could help guide landlords as they craft leases.
