Q. - Annually, someone from City Hall makes an inspection
of rentals in the city. The last time I saw them they told me to call
if I had any questions etc. I don't remember what department they are
in or what number I would call. Can you help?
Answer - The City began making annual inspections
of all multifamily apartments in the City about one year ago, basically
using US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) standards.
The City of Terrell is currently in the process of amending this ordinance
to include the rest of the rental community including duplexes and single
family residential rental housing and to incorporate the nationally
recognized “Crime-Free Rental Program”. The new amended
ordinance is scheduled to be adopted in March, 2010.
If you would like to get more information about our rental property
inspection program, please contact the Municipal Development Department
at Terrell City Hall by phone at 972-551-6600 or by email.
Hal Richards, Mayor
