Wausau landlords may face new regulations

by

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) Tougher rules for rental properties are being considered in Wausau. The public health committee is expected to vote on new regulations.

The biggest change would impact out-of-town landlords who rent apartments within the city. They would be required to have a local agent on-file with the city in case there are problems with their property. The local agent would be contacted if there are emergencies at the property -- like broken pipes -- or if there are repeated problems with tenants.

The other change would be re-inspection fee for properties that are in violation of public health and safety rules. Landlords would have to pay if the building and zoning officer has to return to a property for a third time because of the same violation.

The city is also considering a ban on junk cars parked at rental properties. Vehicles that can’t be operated would have to be garaged or removed.
