(Willmar MN-) The City of Willmar recently got an update on the current state of code enforcement and rental housing inspections in the city. Willmar Operations Director Kyle Box says for the most part, it appears landlords are doing a good job maintaining their properties...

...City Administrator Leslie Valiant says the city hired a new rental housing inspector in March, and they want to crack down on flagrant violations of the city's rental housing codes...

...Valiant says right now large apartment complexes and duplexes are inspected on a regular schedule, but they may have to alter that schedule and have more frequent inspections if they are getting a lot of complaints from tenants. Valiant says the rental housing staff could use more resources to respond to complaints more quickly.
