Bucyrus Ohio council, landlords debate property maintenance ordinance

After convening Tuesday’s special meeting of the Bucyrus City Council Health and Safety Committee, chairman Kevin Myers suggested a page-by-page review of the proposed property maintenance ordinance.

“My intent tonight is to hear everything you have to say,” he told the handful of people — mostly landlords — who attended the meeting. “If you have a question on Page One, let’s go through Page One.”

They never made it to Page Two.

Over the next 90-plus minutes, the committee members and guests debated everything from the purpose of the legislation and the role of a property maintenance officer to whether owners or occupants should be responsible if property is not properly maintained.
