CITY OF ALTON TO IMPLEMENT LANDLORD LICENSING 

The City of Alton will implement its Business Licensing of Landlords, Ordinance #7616, on Monday, May 21, 2018. Any landlord wishing to obtain an Occupancy Permit beginning Monday must be properly licensed and their property registered.

 Property owners with residential rental property in Alton will now have to obtain a Business License, at a cost of $100.00 annually, from the Treasurer’s Office and also register for each of their rental or leased properties from our Building and Zoning Department for an annual fee of $20.00 per dwelling unit. 

All residential dwelling unit license and registration fees will be on a calendar basis. 
This Ordinance excludes any governmental housing authorities or departments, hotels and nursing homes. 

“The purpose of the Ordinance is to make owners accountable for deteriorated and substandard housing and reverse the negative housing trends that have depreciated property values within the City” said Mayor Brant Walker. 

If you have any questions, please contact Assistant City Attorney, Allan Napp at 463-3590 or Mayor Brant Walker at 463-3500, Ext. 3.

Forms are available at the Treasurer’s Office, Building and Zoning and on the City’s website at www.cityofaltonil.com
