City now requiring rental owners to have license, inspection

MCCOMB — The city of McComb will soon require some rental property owners to obtain a privilege license and have their properties inspected.

The Enterprise-Journal reports Mayor Whitney Rawlings broke a tie vote this week to approve the ordinance.

It will require all rental property owners with three or more properties purchase what will likely be a $25 to $30 privilege tax license.

Rawlings says the ordinance will protect property values and decrease blight.

City officials still must decide how much inspections will cost landlords. Rawlings says the issue will be discussed when the board of selectmen meet in May.

The ordinance will go into effect 30 days after the city advertises it in the newspaper, which Rawlings says will mean a June or July start date.
