*New* Rental Property License Procedure

Date Posted: Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023

Starting with 2023 Rental Property Licenses, there is a new procedure to follow. In 2022, the Commissioners voted to amend the existing Rental Property License Code with Ordinance 2022-05. This allows the Town to bring in an outside agency to perform rental inspections on rental properties – following the current building code. Since this is a new process, and we are all on a learning curve, we will be allowing inspections through February for rental properties this year. Once you submit your license application for your rental property, we will turn over the application lists to First State Inspection Agency, and inspections can then be coordinated.  To prepare for inspections – First State Inspection Agency has provided their checklist for property owners so that items can be corrected before the inspection is scheduled, saving reinspection time and costs. That checklist can be found here – – along with First […]

Water Main Break-S. Main Street update

Date Posted: Tuesday, December 21st, 2021    At approximately 5 to 5:30 AM, crews were able to complete the repairs to the water main on S. Main Street and water has been restored. We are issuing a precautionary boil water advisory for any properties affected by this break. As mentioned previously, most properties only had very low pressure during this incident, and the properties completely without water were in the direct vicinity of the break on S. Main Street. **It is recommended that anyone with no water or severe low pressure during this incident follow this advisory.** The length of repair resulted from a failed valve on the southern end of S. Main street that made it impossible to shut the water off completely, which is what caused the steady low pressure. Crews then successfully installed an emergency insertion valve near Antique Alley – after which the repairs were finally able to be completed.   […]
