Cracking Down on Urbana Landlords and Code Violations

Updated: Friday, August 15 2014, 09:48 AM CDT
URBANA -- Urbana landlords who don't keep their buildings up to code may face fines from the city.

This is according to Mayor Laurel Prussing who we spoke to. She is pushing an ordinance in the Urbana city council that would punish landlords whose structures are unsafe. That would cause the evacuation of lower income families with no where to go. Prussing says that it's been a complaint the city has been dealing with for some time and that landlords should compensate those who are being kicked out of their homes.
