Landlords with problematic tenants will be facing some strict fines now in Madeira Beach.
The chronic nuisance ordinance brought up by the Madeira Beach City Commission has made a law, according to the Beach Beacon.
The law will have properties judged by a list of nuisance behaviors and punished if three or more of the behaviors happened in 30 days or seven or more in a six-week period.
The nuisance behaviors are described as:
- activities related to alcoholic beverages
- criminal mischief
- disorderly conduct
- gang activity
- wrecked property
- underage drinking
- grand theft
- domestic violence
The police force would enforce the law and the fines would be dealt with, and paid as, taxes assessments.
