Posted on behalf of my colleague Jane Friedmann:
Two Minneapolis landlords were banned from the business for five years after a vote by the City Council last week.
The ban on Tyrone and Leana Reese satisfies a law that prohibits licenses for landlords who have had two revocations in five years.
In 2010, the city revoked Tyrone Reese’s license for a property at 6015 Wentworth Av. S. after he was cited several times for allowing basement rooms to be used as bedrooms when there was either not enough headroom or no egress window.
In April the pair lost their license for a property at 3822 Lyndale Av. N. after failing to pay a number of citations. Because of the ban, the Reeses had two additional licenses revoked last week, for properties at 3113 Central Av. NE. and 310 31st St. E.
