The City of Roxboro recognizes the need for a rental dwelling registration services program, which will help ensure that all rental dwellings within the City comply with all City ordinances and rules, including but not limited to, the Building Regulations, the Minimum Housing Code, the Zoning Code, and various other fire and safety ordinances. The registration program shall be used as a tool for contacting both absentee and local landlords when it is necessary to compel them to repair or otherwise correct violations of city ordinances and rules. Further, the revenue generated by the privilege tax established as a part of this program shall be generally used to assist the city in its code enforcement efforts. The city has adopted this program pursuant to the authority conferred to it under G.S. §§ 160A-174; 160A-194; 160A-211 and Chapter 160A, Article 19, Part 6, “Minimum Housing Standards.”
