NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Hundreds of residents in North Kansas City packed City Hall Tuesday night, upset over a proposed ordinance that they said could force them out of their homes.
KMBC's Lara Moritz reported that North Kansas City is known for its small-town feel and affordable rental property.
However, residents are blowing the whistle on a proposed ordinance that would include annual codes inspections on every piece of rental property, even if people aren't home. The proposal includes higher fees for landlords, which could, in turn, force them to raise the rent.
