Why did I receive a Quality Rental Housing Certification Packet?

The City is working geographically through the program, from west to east, so if you have received this packet, the program has reached your property. This program requires all owners of property which have two or more units on the property to self certify that the units are in compliance with the State Health and Safety codes related to housing.
