Good Neighbor Ordinance To Go Before Evansville City Council

- A new ordinance set for its first reading before the Evansville City Council could push landlords to evict tenants with a pattern of criminal behavior.

The so called 'Good Neighbor Ordinance' will go before the city council meeting Monday night.

Sponsored by a majority of the council members, the ordinanance would allow police to file a complaint of nuisance activity at a rental property if there are misdemeanor offenses like theft, disorderly conduct or public indecency.
   
If a nuisance complaint is filed, the property owner has 72 hours to put an end to the situation.
   
More serious offenses like rape or murder, can result in automatic eviction.
   
Among others, the ordinance has the support of Monty Fetter, the owner of one of the largest property management companies in Evansville.
