During Monday’s Knoxville city council meeting the council approved a new chapter in the city’s code of ordinances regarding a rental inspection program for the city. According to Knoxville City Manager Aaron Adams the new chapter is the foundation and framework for the new program. Adams tells KNIA/KRLS News with the foundation laid out for the program the process will now get started. Adams says the city does not anticipate starting inspections right away. He says the city has plenty of leg work still to do including, identifying rentals and making sure every landlord in Knoxville has a clear understanding of the program. He says the city would like to see all landlords pass inspections the first time so it is critical to make sure the expectations of the program are laid out. Adams says the city will also be putting together an appeals process for the program that will be considered at another city council meeting.
