Proposal hopes to make landlords responsible for tenant's utility bill
November 12, 2020
Monday evening members of the Superior City Council approved on first reading an ordinance which, if passed on three readings, will make owners of rental property responsible for any unpaid utility bills renters of the property may leave the city with.
Plans are being formulated to familiarize landlords with the proposal.
Following a state supreme court case which opened the door for such rules, the League of Nebraska Municipalities is encouraging the state’s utilities to adopt the policy.
Also passed on the first of three readings were two changes to the city traffic regulations.
