INDIANAPOLIS | Dozens of Indiana state laws take effect Tuesday. Here are some of the new laws that may directly affect area residents:
INDIANAPOLIS | Cities and towns across Indiana, including several region communities, are one signature away from losing their ability to vigorously regulate rental properties within their borders.
INDIANAPOLIS | Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. ran into a stone wall of indifference Wednesday before an Indiana Senate committee, as he fought to save his city's rental property registration and inspection program.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled Indiana House voted 67-28 Monday to limit the ability of cities and towns to regulate rental properties in their communities.
INDIANAPOLIS | A House committee gave the go-ahead Tuesday for a revised plan allowing rental property owners to exempt their units from inspection by local government officials.
INDIANAPOLIS | The three children killed this month in a Hammond house fire weighed heavily on Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. on Tuesday as he urged a legislative panel not to limit the ability of local governments to inspect rental properties.
CALUMET CITY | Alderman Thaddeus Jones wants the City Council to back him in creating a program in which the city could have greater control over rental properties.
MUNSTER| The Town Council has taken the municipality out of the rental property eviction equation with an amendment to the water billing policies.
CALUMET CITY | The City Council gave its approval Thursday to changes in several city ordinances on issues ranging from keeping rental properties free of crime to restrictions on solicitors.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana Supreme Court has affirmed the authority of Ogden Dunes to prohibit short-term rentals of single-family homes.
HAMMOND | A federal court has stopped the city of Hammond from enforcing part of an ordinance that charges out-of-state landlords more money to register their rental properties than Hammond-based landlords.
While there is no doubt there are rental properties in Valparaiso in need of repair and renovation, the proposed registration and inspection ordinance is overreaching, intrusive and, if enforced, expensive to taxpayers.
