SPECIAL HEARING!

Posted on Updated on

Muncie’s City Council is holding a “SPECIAL HEARING” on their proposed rental property registration ordinance this coming Monday evening, December 19, 2016 at 6:00 pm in the Muncie City Hall auditorium!!!
ALL City of Muncie investment property owners and renters will be subject to this new ordinance whereas the City of Muncie will force properties to be registered and subject to inspection! (see the attached ordinance)
There is already ordinances, the Delaware County Building Commissioner and the Delaware County Health Department established to protect citizens from unhealthy conditions and substandard housing. This new legislation is nothing more than to create more bureaucracy, new revenues through additional fees and expand local government that already can’t pay it’s own way or enforce the existing ordinances already on the books.
Be there if you want to be heard!

The City of Muncie is toying with a registry for rental properties.  Currently, they are looking at a $5.00 fee.  How long do you think it will stay at $5.00?

The ordinance is being introduced on Monday (12-5) at Muncie City Hall – 7:30 PM.

Meanwhile, the citizens of the city paying the attorney fees for a lawsuit against several city employees, under an FBI investigation and has lost or is losing two State grants.

Just last year the Mayor and City Council passed a 43% income tax in 14 days.  The director of Muncie Redevelopment Commission tried to get an ordinance introduced and passed to give his condo property a tax abatement.

And get this…the Mayor is upset with a company who managed the city pool because the business owner is not providing the city with the company’s financials.  The city is on the hook for $96,000.00.  Under normal circumstances, you would consider this good government.  Watching out for tax dollars, right?  Except it is not the case for this administration.

This has been the murkiest and crony oriented government this city has ever seen.
