SIKESTON, Mo. -- Effective Dec. 1, the application for tenancy that must be submitted by landlords will require a $15 fee.
As it was waived for its first two years, many landlords may need to be reminded that the $15 fee was actually established with the city's latest rental housing ordinance in November 2000, according to Tom Bridger, public works director.
The city's rental housing ordinance was originally passed in January 1997 and amended in September 1997, according to Linda Lowes, director of governmental services. The goal of the ordinance is to improve Sikeston's housing stock and living conditions.
