K-State Students Seek Rental Inspection Program

KSAL StaffOctober 8, 2015

Students at Kansas State are asking the Manhattan City Commission to consider reinstating a rental inspection program.

The commission repealed the city’s previous program, which called for mandatory inspections and fees for landlords. The program was stopped in 2011 after just one year.

Representatives from the Student Governing Association told the commission Tuesday that the issue is a matter of student safety. Student body president Andy Hurtig says some students who rent properties are living in “very deplorable conditions.”

The K-State Student Governing Association unanimously passed a resolution earlier to encourage the commission to look into the issue.

Mayor Karen McCulloh says the commission will take what they said under consideration.
