Dubuque Area Landlords Association-Housing Vouchers

At the request of a member of Dubuque Area Landlords Association, the City Council this week voted to postpone voting on amendments to require rental property owners to accept housing vouchers from qualified tenants for the duration of their forgivable loan agreement with the city. Diane McClain asked the council for more time so the group could meet with staff for a better understanding of what the changes might mean. City Manager, Mike Van Milligan, noted that the city would need approval from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development before preceding anyway. Van Milligan said before another vote is taken by the council, city staff will meet with the Dubuque Area Landlords Association to lay out the ramifications if it were to be approved at a future meeting.
