(A)   Abating nuisances. No owner or property agent of a residential rental building located in the town shall knowingly allow a tenant to be a nuisance to their neighbors. For purposes of this chapter, an owner or property agent becomes aware of a nuisance upon receipt of a notice of a complaint, nuisance determination, or an eviction filing order as provided for in this chapter.
   (B)   Discrimination forbidden. Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to encourage or authorize the discrimination by lessors against any persons based upon any protected class established by the legislative, executive or judicial branch of Federal, state or local government. Rather, it is the intent of this chapter to hold persons accountable for acquiescing in or participating in the continued use of their property in a manner that results in a nuisance or nuisance activity affecting the quality of life of residents of the town.
   (C)   This chapter is not intended to be used against victims of reported incidents of domestic violence.
