Just because someone has done something criminal in the past does not mean they
will in the future. Alot of people change as they get older do not act as
before. I have seen decent people living in shabby places because the landlords
didn't up keep the property themselves.
Provo needs to keep its nose out of its citizen's business. I can't wait to see
someone sue these cities--and the landlords who go along with them--for
unreasonable invasion of privacy.
Provo needs to push ahead with this ordinance. I do not want to see Provo become
one big slum. Yes, some landlords are responsible and do not need such an
ordinance. Others could care less about their property and the neighborhood. So
long as the check clears they don't care what goes on in the neighborhood.
Landlords concern for the neighbors? Their attitude is often "Who cares? It's my
private property right." Well, the neighbors should have rights also. They
should be able to raise their families without having a problem home across the
street. They should be able to pay their mortgage and not have their property
value decreased by slumlike conditions springing up around them.
