The Belton City Council approved a Rental Registration and Inspection Program for rental units in the city limits on October 10, 2023 by Ordinance No. 2023-4810 . The Rental Registration and Inspection Program will be effective on July 1, 2024. As part of this amendment, a $20 per unit rental registration fee is required annually. This fee will cover the costs of registration and inspections for the unit (separate fees for re-inspections may apply). More detailed information on the registration and inspection process will be available in spring 2024 in advance of the July 1, 2024 effective date. The City is currently in the process of creating an online portal to improve the registration and inspection process.
