§ 150.035  PURPOSE.
   It is the purpose of this subchapter to protect the public health, safety and welfare of citizens of the city who live in rental units by adopting a rental dwelling inspection and maintenance program that corrects substandard conditions and maintains a standard for existing and newly constructed rental dwellings in the city. The operation of rental properties is a business enterprise that includes certain responsibilities. Rental owners, operators and managers are responsible to take such reasonable steps as are necessary to ensure that the citizens who occupy such rental units, as well as neighboring properties, may pursue the quiet enjoyment of the normal activities of life in surroundings that are safe, secure, and sanitary, free from noise, nuisances and annoyances, and free from unreasonable fears about safety of persons and property.
