BELLEVILLE — The city's proposed crime-free housing ordinance will be reviewed by the Public Health and Housing Committee on Wednesday.
The proposal includes a $25 annual fee on each rental unit, which will provide about $250,000 annually to pay for a police officer and staff dedicated to the program meant to reduce crime in rental units.
Aldermen will discuss the latest draft of the ordinance at the meeting, set for 6 p.m. Wednesday in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 101 S. Illinois St.
The task force will then have a joint meeting with the aldermanic Ordinance and Legal Review Committee at 6:30 p.m. on April 11 in the City Council Chambers.
The most recent draft of the proposed ordinance is available on the city's website, www.belleville.net.
