Private Property Rights trampled?
To inspect / search any home or business REQUIRES A SEARCH WARRANT.

MORE FEES $$ AND SOMEONE TO DICTATE TO YOU WHAT YOU MUST TO DO TO YOUR PRIVATE PROPERTY BEFORE THE CITY RULERS ALLOW YOU TO OCCUPY YOUR OWN HOUSE.

It is all about safety for the children right?

Totalitariam Cities- what a name.... anyway- You are so wrong.... this article only discusses renters and occupancy permits. This practice has been in effect in other areas for many years. What this article doe snot claim- is what you refer to- occupying your own home. Let's ask it this way- do yo pay yourself rent for your home? Then your aren't a renter occupying your own home.
And no- it does no require a search warrant- many locales require an inspection by the Fire District to ensure things are OK BEFORE you can occupy a home you purchased.
So sir- the obliviousness of your post makes you look silly. The voracity of your argument on this non-issue make you look even sillier.

? I understand the reasoning and need for occupancy permits. Not a new concept in STL region. My question is in Ofallon, is it on the landlord to get the inspections or the renter? Just moving back and was not even told about this new ordinance and when I brought it up the management says they got one and I had nothing to do with it nor need a printed copy. I know from past residency in parts of stl county, before we could sign a lease or enroll children in school, we personally had to get one from the local municipality. But the difference was there wasn't a property inspection.
What is O'fallon's motive with the permits? Is it population control or maintaining a standard on properties in the community? lol or just another revenue generator?
Anyone?
