Outgoing councilwoman encouraging more discussion on landlord issues

Tami Pyfer won’t be voting on a proposed Landlord Licensing Bill if it comes before the Logan Municipal Council because her second term as a councilmember ends next week and she chose not to seek re-election. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday, Pyfer said she’s had mixed feelings on a Landlord Licensing Bill and she felt the council was moving too fast on the issue for a while. “I had wanted to step back and get a coalition or a group of effective parties involved, such as bringing in some landlords to talk about the issue and looking at the ordinances we already have,” Pyfer said. “That’s what I advocated several months ago and that’s actually what has happened.” Pyfer says by adding more people into the discussion, hopefully a better resolution can be arrived at. “We’ve stepped back now and put a board together,” she continued. “We have Jack Nixon and Mark Lundt and several landlords and some community members together. They are going to be bringing a recommendation now to the city council.” Pyfer says whether or not there is a landlord licensing program she feels something will be done to help solve the kinds of problems that exist at the present time.
