Citizens call for landlord licensing at City Council
Mark Stayton // The Western Front
Anne Mackie, president of the York Neighborhood Association, was one of five citizens who brought the issue of landlord liscensing and housing unit inspection to the attention of Bellingham's City Council on Jan. 25. Mackie said regulative measures adopted by other cities could help prevent unsafe conditions in rental units, referring to the recent house fires in her neighborhood. "I am thankful we are not starting the meeting tonight with a moment of silence," Mackie said.
