BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A proposed law that would require rental owners to register and pay a fee is moving forward.

The Bellingham City Council voted Monday to hold a public hearing on a proposed landlord registration system.

The vote was unanimous, but council member Jack Weiss held his nose.

 

Weiss doesn’t like that the latest plan does not include a controversial random inspection provision.

The fees would pay for a city inspector to respond to tenant complaints.

The public hearing on rental registrations won’t happen until this fall at the earliest.
