HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - An issue that has stuck onto Holland City Council members for several weeks may finally be dealt with this evening.
Passions were evident when City Manager Ryan Cotton proposed a hike in annual inspection and administrative fees for rental properties in the Tulip City from the current 75 dollars for the first unit to 115 dollars, with corresponding increases for additional units. The money generated would allow the restoring of a full complement of inspectors to conduct required surveys. The outcry from landlords was loud enough to compel Council to initially table the matter, and to hold a special meeting prior to the regularly-scheduled, bi-weekly work-study session this evening.
Council will also vote on a recommendation about 12th Street drainage improvements, and disclose the results of an annual performance evaluation of Manager Cotton done behind closed doors at the outset of the 5:30 PM special meeting in the second floor Training Center of City Hall.
