Effective Jan. 1, the City of Marion is requiring all residential rental properties, rooming houses, apartment buildings and commercial hotels within city limits to submit an Application for Registration Receipt with the Building Department. Notices are being mailed out to property owners who fit into the category. Owners may go ahead and submit applications prior to receiving the mailing.
The deadline is April 1 to register a rental property or face a penalty of $500 for each day beyond the deadline date for each property. Registration forms are available in the Building Department (third floor of City Hall) and are downloadable from https://cityofmarion.in.gov/government/departments/building-department/rental-property-registration. The fee is $5 per property, which is good for one calendar year.
