Small landlords may need to register rentals in North Canton

NORTH CANTON – After nearly a decade of stop-and-go, North Canton City is moving forward with a plan that will require some landlords to register their rental properties with the city.

Administration Director Patrick Diorio said during this week’s council meeting that registration will help protect the health and safety of residents by holding landlords accountable, while some council members said registration will help the city ensure all residents pay appropriate local taxes.

“It’s about health, safety and well-being,” Diorio said. “It is accidental to me that we will find out about income taxes. It is accidental for me to find tenants who are running businesses outside of these apartments. It would be accidental to me that property values ​​increase.”
