Landlord & Homeowner Educational Sessions

September 6, 2018 09:53 AM
The Galesburg City Council updated the Rental Licensing and Housing Minimum Standards Codes this past June.  These code changes apply to all housing in Galesburg and were enacted to provide better clarification of standards and improve housing safety. 
Due to these changes, the City of Galesburg will hold three identical educational sessions for landlords in September to provide information and guidance about the recent changes for rental properties, including the annual licensing of rental units and housing minimum standards. The dates and times are: Wednesday, September 12, 11:00 a.m.; Tuesday, September 18, 2:00 p.m.; Thursday, September 27, 6:00 p.m., each about an hour. Landlords are strongly encouraged to attend one of the meetings as there are important changes.
A fourth session for owner occupied homes will be held Tuesday, October 2 at 6:00 p.m. to provide information regarding the updated Housing Minimum Standards Code and its impact on all residential properties in Galesburg. All sessions will be in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 55 W. Tompkins Street, Galesburg, IL. 
Landlords, tenants and homeowners may view the updated code online by going to the City of Galesburg website home page, click on the "Doing Business" heading at the top, a pop down menu will include "Municipal Code," click on that.  This will go to American Legal Publishing, then click on the blue button which says "View Code." The Rental Licensing Program is in Sections 150.225 through 150.999 and the Housing Code Minimum Standards are in Sections 150.150 through 150.170.
For questions about the sessions, please call Judy Guenseth at 309/345-3652. For questions regarding the rental licensing, call Abra Slagel at 309/345-3612.
