This week, Erie city council is set to consider an ordinance, as part of their efforts to collect more than $2 million dollars in delinquent garbage fees.
When WICU & WSEE broke the story about the millions in unpaid garbage fees, we also uncovered that a majority of those unpaid garbage bills were from landlords.
The city has been aggressively trying to come up with ways to collect, ever since.
At city council's meeting on Wednesday, they'll consider an ordinance which would require all landlords who want a rental license, to be up-to-date with all their taxes and fees.
That means landlords who owe tens of thousands in unpaid garbage bills would have to pay up, in order to continue to rent their properties.
As we've reported, the city is also considering combining water, sewer, and garbage fees onto one bill.
