Section 4. Force Majeure. The Company shall not be liable for failure to furnish service as herein provided, or for any breach of the Company’s obligations hereunder, if such failure or breach is caused by acts of God or nature, labor troubles, riot, or any other causes or contingencies not reasonably within the control of the Company.

Section 5. Hold Harmless. The Company shall at all times keep and save the City (and its officials, officers, employees and agents) free and harmless for, from and against all claims for loss, damages, costs and expense arising from or related to the Company’s negligent or other legally actionable errors or omissions in the exercise of the Company’s activities or rights under this Ordinance.

Nothing herein shall be construed to lessen or interfere with the governmental immunity of the City and its agents, employees and contractors.

Section 12. No Assignment.

CITY OF WHITE CLOUD

NEWAYGO COUNTY, MI

ORDINANCE 2022-04

RENTAL UNIT REGULATION ORDINANCE

AN ORDINANCE TO RESCIND THE RENTAL UNIT REGULATION OF RENTAL ORDINANCE 2015-24 AND ADOPT 2022-04; AN ORDINANCE TO REGULATE RENTAL UNITS IN THE CITY OF WHITE CLOUD, NEWAYGO COUNTY, MICHIGAN; TO REQUIRE REGISTRATION OF RENTAL UNITS; TO REQUIRE CERTIFICATES OF COMPLIANCE; TO REQUIRE INSPECTIONS; TO PRESCRIBE PENALTIES FOR THE VIOLATION OF THIS ORDINANCE; TO REPEAL CONFLICTING ORDINANCES; AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS ORDINANCE.

THE CITY OF WHITE CLOUD, COUNTY OF NEWAYGO AND STATE OF MICHIGAN ORDAINS:

Section 1. Purpose. The purpose of this Ordinance is to regulate rental units in City of White Cloud (the “City”). The reasons for this Ordinance include the following, without limitation.

A. Rental units are generally, in whole or in part, not occupied by their owners.

B. The occupants of rental units tend to change more often than the occupants of owner-occupied dwelling units.

C. Because of subsection A and subsection B above, rental units in general tend to deteriorate more quickly and to remain in a deteriorated condition longer than owner-occupied dwelling units.

D. Occupants of rental units generally do not have the right or the responsibility to maintain the condition of or to repair the rental unit.

E. The City wishes to protect innocent third parties from renting substandard rental units.

F. The City further wishes to protect innocent third parties who move into a rental unit which subsequently deteriorates due to lack of proper property maintenance.

G. Protection of the health, safety and welfare of residents of rental properties and adjacent properties.

Section 2. Definitions.

The following words, terms, and phrases, when used in this Ordinance, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this Section, except where the context clearly indicates a different meaning.

A. “Landlord” means any person who owns or controls and rents a rental unit, either personally or through a responsible local agent to any person.

B. “Owner/property owner”. The individual(s), company, corporation, or governmental or private agency listed on the recorded deed as the owner, or purchaser under a recorded land contract of a property containing residential rental dwelling unit(s).

C. “Person” means a firm, association, partnership, joint venture, corporation, trust, an equivalent entity or a combination of these entities, or a natural person.

D. “Rental Inspector” the individual, company, or agency designated by the City of White Cloud to perform inspections pursuant to this ordinance.

E. “Residential rental dwelling unit” (rental unit) distinct individual living quarters within a building intended for occupancy by a person or persons other than the owner and the family of the owner, and for which a remuneration of any kind is paid. Single-family residences, mobile homes, duplexes, apartments, and rooming houses may all contain and be classified as residential rental dwelling units.

F. Responsible local agent. An individual or company representing the owner having a place of residence or business within the county or within 20 miles of the city if residing outside the county. The local agent is responsible for the operation of the owner’s residential rental dwelling unit(s) located within the city regarding compliance with the provisions of this ordinance, and the terms and conditions of all other codes and ordinances of the city. A local agent is required if:

1.) The owner resides outside of the county more than 20 miles from the city.

2.) The owner resides outside of the county more than 20 miles from the city for more than 90 days each calendar year.

Section 3. Fees. There shall be no fee for the registration, re-registration, or updating of registration information within the allotted time periods, however there shall be a late fee if there is a failure to register within allotted time frames. Fees will be required for all inspections, required for obtaining certificates of compliance and late fees and shall be as established in the Schedule of Fees adopted by resolution of the City Council.

Section 4. Penalties. Any person who shall violate a provision of this Ordinance or shall fail to comply with any of requirements shall be responsible for a municipal civil infraction subject to enforcement procedures as set forth in the Municipal Civil Infractions Ordinance 2022-03, Section 5 adopted by the City.

The Rental Inspector, Zoning Administrator, any White Cloud Police Officer(s) as well as the City Manager, are hereby designated as the authorized City Officials to issue municipal civil infraction citations (directing alleged violators to appear in Court) or municipal civil infraction notices (directing alleged violators to appear at the City of White Cloud).

Section 5. Registration.

A. Required. No owner shall lease, rent or otherwise allow a rental unit to be occupied unless the rental unit is registered with the City and a person (if required) is designated as a responsible local agent. The owner or responsible local agent shall be legally responsible for operating the registered rental unit in compliance with the ordinances adopted by the City; shall be responsible for providing access to the rental unit for any and all inspections necessary to ensure compliance with ordinances adopted by the City; and shall accept all legal notices or service or process with respect to the rental unit. The responsible local agent shall maintain a list of the names of occupants of each rental unit for which he or she is responsible.

B. Registration Term and Renewal of Existing Rental Units. The registration of a rental unit shall be effective for three years, and it shall be the responsibility of the owner or responsible local agent to reregister the rental unit by the first of the month immediately preceding the expiration of the registration for the rental unit. Upon registration, a certificate of compliance shall be obtained pursuant to this Ordinance prior to permitting occupancy of any new rental unit.

C. Change in Registration Information. The owner of a rental unit registered with The City shall re-register within ten (10) business days after any change occurs in registration information. A new owner of a registered rental unit shall re-register the rental unit as provided in this Ordinance.

D. Application for Registration. An application for registration for a rental unit shall be made in such form and in accordance with such instructions as may be provided by the City Council or its designee and shall include at least the following information:

1.) The address of the rental unit;

2.) The names and addresses of all owners of the rental unit;

3.) The name, address, telephone number, and email address of the person authorized to collect rent from the individual(s) occupying the rental units;

4.) The name, local address, telephone number, and email address of the responsible local agent;

5.) The number of rental units in each building;

6.) The authorization appointing a responsible local agent signed by both the owner and the responsible local agent; and

7.) The name, business address and telephone number of any person who holds lien on the rental unit or the real property on which the rental unit is located.

E. Inaccurate or Incomplete Registration Information. It shall be a violation of this Ordinance for an owner or a responsible local agent to provide inaccurate information for the registration of a rental unit or to fail to provide information required by the City for the registration. In those cases in which the owner is not a natural person, the owner information shall be that of the president, general manager or other chief executive office of the organization. Where more than one natural person has an ownership interest, the required information shall be provided for each such owner.

Section 6. Certificate of Compliance.

A. Required. No person shall own, operate, lease, rent or occupy a rental unit unless there is a valid certificate of compliance issued by the City Rental Inspector or its designee, which certificate of compliance shall be issued in the name of the owner and issued for the specific rental unit.

The certificate of compliance shall be issued for each building containing a rental unit. The certificate of compliance shall be always displayed in a conspicuous place in each rental unit. The certificate of compliance shall be issued only after both of the following are completed:

1.) Registration of the rental unit with the City; and

2.) Inspection by the City or its designee demonstrating compliance with ordinances adopted by the City and state law.

B. Triennial Inspections. Subsequent to the registration of all rental units as required by this Ordinance, the City Rental Inspector or its designee shall commence inspection of all rental units. The City shall inspect approximately 1/3 of all residential rental units each year with all rental units to be inspected within a three-year period. Once the rental unit is deemed to be in compliance with all ordinances adopted by the City and state law, the inspection required for issuance of a certificate of compliance shall be satisfied. The inspection shall then be valid for a period of three years. The City Rental Inspector or its designee shall thereafter alternate inspection triennially. In cases where there is an owner of multiple rental units, the city should divide the inspection of their rental units equally over the three-year period.

C. Temporary Certificates of Compliance. Temporary certificates of compliance may be issued without prior inspection to owners of occupied rental units existing within 90 days after the re-adoption date of this Ordinance. Such certificates may be issued as of the effective date of the initial registration following that date, to allow owners to operate such rental units until such time as an inspection may be made by the City Rental Inspector or its designee. At such time inspection is made by City Rental Inspector or its designee and a determination has been made that compliance with the provisions of this Ordinance have been secured, the temporary certificate shall expire.

D. Prerequisites for Issuance. The City Rental Inspector or its designee shall not issue a certificate of compliance unless a current rental unit registration is in effect, the responsible local agent is properly designated, and any late fees for registration plus any penalties are paid in full and inspection as required by this Ordinance has determined that compliance has been secured with the minimum standards and other provisions of the ordinances adopted by the City.

E. Inspections. All rental units and their premises governed by this Ordinance shall be inspected and comply with the standards of the ordinances adopted by the City. If an inspection is scheduled and the owner or responsible local agent fails to appear, a late inspection fee as specified in the city’s schedule of fees shall be assessed against the owner and/or the responsible local agent; and no inspection shall be completed, nor certificate of compliance granted until the fee is paid in full.

F. Posting. The following information shall be posted in a conspicuous place either within each rental unit or in a common area shared by all occupants of a building with rental units:

1.) A copy of the current certificate of compliance; and

2.) The name, address, telephone number and email address of the responsible local agent.

G. Revocation of Certificate of Compliance. If the City Rental Inspector or its designee shall discover the failure of any owner to comply with a notice of violation issued pursuant to the provisions of the ordinances adopted by the City, the certificate of compliance may be revoked.

H. Appeal of Denial of Registration or Revocation. Any owner whose rental unit registration has been denied or whose certificate of compliance has been revoked may file an appeal to the Property Maintenance/Construction Code Board of Appeals. The appeal must be filed in writing with the City Clerk within 20 calendar days of the denial or revocation.

I. Revocation.

1.) Upon revocation of a certificate of compliance and the completion of any appeal, if the rental unit is deemed unfit for human habitation, the rental unit shall immediately be vacated. No person shall thereafter occupy the rental unit for sleeping or living purposes until it complies with this Ordinance.

2.) When a rental unit is found to be in violation of the provisions of the ordinances adopted by the city but determined to be habitable, a vacation order shall not be entered. However, the certificate of compliance shall be deemed expired, and the rental unit shall be in violation of the terms of this Ordinance.

J. Expiration. A certificate of compliance shall expire on the date stated on the certificate of compliance or on the repair date stated on a notice to repair. Sixty days after such expiration date, it shall be unlawful for the rental unit to be occupied unless a new certificate of compliance has been issued. A rental unit which has not been previously certified shall be deemed to have an expiration date on the date the responsible local agent is notified to register the rental unit.

K. Notification of Expired Certificate. Sixty days after expiration of a certificate of compliance, the City may issue a notice of expired certificate to the owner and to the occupant of the rental unit. A placard containing the required notice shall be posted on the rental unit and may not be removed until a new certificate of compliance is issued. The notice shall state that:

1.) The rental unit does not have a valid certificate of compliance;

2.) It is unlawful for any vacant rental unit to be reoccupied or rented; and

3.) Current tenants may be entitled to escrow rent moneys as provided for under state law.

L. Renewal. At least 30 days prior to the expiration of a certificate of compliance, the City shall notify the owner to re-register the rental unit and to arrange for a compliance inspection. The owner shall be responsible for re-registering a rental unit and arranging a compliance inspection prior to the expiration date on the certificate. When a certificate of compliance is re-issued in accordance with this Ordinance, it shall have a three-year expiration date with the same month and day as shown on the previous certificate, regardless of the date that the new certificate is issued.

M. Certificate of Compliance Not Required. A certificate of compliance shall not be required for living or sleeping accommodations in jails, hospitals, nursing homes, school dormitories, convalescent homes, retirement homes, foster homes or for temporary group shelters provided by legal not-for-profit agencies which are inspected, certified and/or licensed by other governmental agencies.

Section 7. Inspections.

A. Basis. Inspections may be made to obtain and maintain compliance with the standards of this Ordinance based upon one of the following:

1.) A complaint received by the City indicating that there is a violation of the standards, or the provisions of the ordinances adopted by the City;

2.) An observation by the City of a violation of the standards or the provisions of the ordinances adopted by the City;

3.) A report or observation of a dwelling that is unoccupied and unsecured or a dwelling that is fire damaged;

4.) The registration, re-registration and certification of a rental unit as required by this Ordinance;

5.) The need to determine compliance with a notice or an order issued by the City;

6.) An emergency observed or reasonably believed to exist;

7.) A request for an inspection by the property owner; or

8.) Requirements of law where a dwelling is to be demolished by the city or where ownership is to be transferred to the City.

B. Complaint Initiated Inspections. If an inspection is initiated by a complaint and no violation is found to exist, no inspection fees will be assessed against the owner of the inspected rental unit.

C. Re-inspection. Where a re-inspection must be made to ensure conformity with this Ordinance, there will be charged a separate fee for every inspection when the violation has not been abated or corrected.

D. Transfer of Ownership Inspection.

1.) If there is a transfer of ownership concerning any rental unit, including an owner-occupied rental unit, and a current certificate of compliance exists, a final inspection by the City Rental Inspector or its designee shall be waived.

2.) If there is a transfer of ownership concerning any rental unit, including an owner-occupied rental unit, and a current certificate of compliance does not exist, there shall be a final inspection by the City Rental Inspector or its designee. If violations of this Ordinance are found, a notice of violations shall be issued to both the current owner and the prospective buyer.

3.) If ownership of any rental unit is transferred contrary to this Ordinance, the certificate of compliance and rental unit registration shall be deemed to expire within ten (10) business days of the transfer unless appropriate steps are taken to obtain a rental unit registration and certificate of compliance.

4.) If a transfer of ownership occurs and violations are found during the final inspection, the rental unit registration shall become invalid. Any new owner shall register within ten (10) days of the date of transfer of any rental unit. Every person holding such registration shall notify the City Clerk or its designee in writing of the change in the ownership of such rental unit.

5.) Any residents of a rental unit which undergoes a transfer of ownership while the individuals are residing in that unit, including an owner-occupied rental unit, shall be notified of any transfer of ownership.

Section 8. International Property Maintenance Code (2015, Ordinance 2022-02). The International Property Maintenance Code (2015) and any subsequent amendments is incorporated by reference as if fully set out within this document.

Section 9. Severability. This Ordinance and its various parts, sections, subsections, sentences, phrases and clauses are declared to be servable. If any part, section, subsection, sentence, phrase, or clause is adjudged unconstitutional or invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of the Ordinance shall not be affected.

The Bureaus shall not accept payment of fines/costs from any person who denies having committed the alleged violation or who admits responsibility only with explanation.

CITY OF NEWAYGO

NEWAYGO COUNTY, MICHIGAN

Ordinance No. 2022-04

AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND CHAPTER 4 (NONCONFORMING LOTS, USES AND STRUCTURES) OF THE CODE OF ORDINANCES FOR THE

CITY OF NEWAYGO

THE CITY OF NEWAYGO (THE “CITY”) ORDAINS:

Article I. Amendment. Chapter 4 (Nonconforming Lots, Uses, and Structures) of the Code of Ordinances for the City of Newaygo is hereby amended and reads as follows:

Chapter 4-Nonconforming Lots, Uses and Structures:

Section 4.01 Purpose

It is recognized that there exists within zoning districts certain buildings, structures, uses, and lots which were lawful before this Ordinance was adopted (or amended), and which would be prohibited, regulated, or restricted under the terms of this Ordinance. It is the intent of this Ordinance to permit nonconforming lots, buildings, structures, and uses to continue until they are removed or abandoned, but not to encourage their survival.

Nonconforming lots, buildings, structures, and uses are declared by this Ordinance to be incompatible with permitted uses in the zoning districts in which they are located. It is the intent of this Ordinance that these nonconformities shall not be enlarged, intensified, expanded, or extended, nor be used as grounds for adding other buildings, structures or uses prohibited elsewhere in the zoning district, and shall gradually be eliminated over time.

Section 4.02 General Requirements

A. No building, structure or part thereof shall be constructed, erected, moved, placed, maintained, reconstructed, used, extended, enlarged or altered, except in full conformity with the regulations herein specified for the zoning district in which it is located and any other applicable regulations in this Ordinance.

B. No use shall be established on any lot, land or premises except in full conformity with the use regulations of the zoning district in which it is located and any other applicable regulations in this Ordinance.

C. No building or structure shall be established on any lot, land or premises except in full conformity with the regulations of the zoning district in which it is located and any other applicable regulations in this Ordinance.

D. Nothing in this Ordinance shall be deemed to require a change in the plans, construction, or designated use of any building or structure on which actual construction was lawfully begun prior to the effective date of adoption or amendment of this Ordinance and upon which actual construction has been commenced and diligently conducted.

E. The City may acquire, through purchase or condemnation, private nonconforming lots, buildings and structures. The City Council may take these actions in the manner provided for by law.

Section 4.03 Nonconforming Uses

A. The lawful use of any land or premises exactly as it existed at the time of enactment of this Zoning Ordinance, or relevant amendment thereto, may be continued although the use does not conform to the current provisions of the Zoning Ordinance. No such nonconforming use shall be expanded, intensified, extended or enlarged.

B. If a nonconforming use is abandoned or if any nonconforming use ceases for any reason for a period of six (6) months or longer, any subsequent use shall fully conform to the requirements of this Ordinance.

C. A nonconforming use shall be considered abandoned if one (1) or more of the following conditions exists, and shall be deemed to constitute intent on the part of the property owner to abandon the nonconforming use:

1. Utilities, such as water, gas and electricity to the property, have been disconnected;

2. The property, buildings, and grounds, have fallen into disrepair;

3. Signs or other indications of the existence of the nonconforming use have been removed;

4. Removal of buildings, structures, equipment or fixtures that are necessary for the operation of the nonconforming use; or

5. Other actions, which in the opinion of the Zoning Administrator constitute an intention on the part of the property owner or lessee to abandon the nonconforming use.

Section 4.04 Nonconforming Building and Structures

A. Any building or structure existing and lawful at the time of enactment of this Zoning Ordinance, or amendments thereto, may be continued although the building or structure does not conform to the current dimensional, area or numerical provisions of the Zoning Ordinance.

B. Repairs and maintenance work may be made as are required to keep a non-conforming building or structure in a sound condition. However, structural changes are prohibited.

C. If a building or structure is lawfully nonconforming because one or more parts thereof violate a setback requirement but the use of the building or structure complies with the zoning district within which the property is located (as well as all other applicable requirements of this Ordinance), the building or structure may be extended or enlarged or increased in height or size so long as any and all portions of such expansion, extension or height or size increase meet all applicable setback, height and other requirements of the zoning district in which the property is located and other requirements of this Ordinance.

D. In the event fire, storm, wind or an act of God or the public enemy shall damage any non-conforming building(s) or structure(s), it may be rebuilt or restored provided the cost thereof shall not exceed one half of the replacement cost of the building or structure after the rebuilding or restoration. The Building Inspector shall determine the cost of reconstruction.

E. In the event any non-conforming building(s) or structure(s) shall be damaged by fire, wind or an act of God or the public enemy and the cost of rebuilding or restoration exceeds one half of the replacement cost of the building(s) or structure(s) after rebuilding or restoration (as determined by the Building Inspector), the buildings or structures shall be built in full conformance with the requirements of the zoning district in which they are located (and any other applicable ordinance requirements), unless the Zoning Board of Appeals permits the rebuilding or restoration of the building or structure. The approval of the Zoning Board of Appeals shall be granted only upon finding that both of the following are true:

1. That the rebuilding or restoration will not substantially extend the probable duration of the non-conforming building or structure; and

2. There are circumstances that the land previously occupied by the non-conforming building or structure does not permit the reasonable and complying construction of the new building or structure.

F. Buildings or structures nonconforming solely because of height, area, parking or loading provisions only may be expanded provided that the Zoning Board of Appeals determines that all three (3) of the following occur. Expansion shall include extension, enlargement, alteration or modernization.

1. All development requirements are satisfied with respect to the expansion;

2. The expansion shall not substantially extend the life of any nonconforming structure by reason of parking and loading provisions; and

3. The nonconforming structure is made conforming or less nonconforming by the addition of parking and/or loading space. Thereafter any subsequent expansion of the nonconforming structure or change in use will not be allowed if it requires even greater parking and/or loading space.

Section 4.05 Nonconforming Lots

A. If a lot has less than the minimum required area, width, size, or dimension required for the zoning district in which it is located, the area or dimension may be maintained but shall not be further divided or reduced.

B. Existing Platted Lots

1. Where a nonconforming platted lot has an area of not less than ninety (90) percent of its zoning district requirements and where the lot can provide the side and front yard requirements of its zone, the permitted uses of the zoning district shall be allowed.

2. A nonconforming platted lot, in single ownership, of less than ninety (90) percent of its zoning district requirements may be utilized for permitted uses, and the required side and front yards may be reduced by the same percentage the area of the lot bears to its zoning district requirements, provided that no side yard provision may be reduced to less than seven (7) feet, and no front yard shall be less than twenty (20) feet and that all off-street parking requirements are also met.

C. Adjacent Lots in Common Ownership

1. No adjoining lot or lots in common ownership shall be so divided, altered, split or reduced in size or area so as to make the area or dimension less than the minimum specified for the zoning district in which it is located.

2. If two or more lots or combination of lots or portions of lots are located adjacent to each other or have continuous frontage and are held or owned in a single ownership of record, one or more of the lots are vacant (i.e. no principal building thereon) and if all or part of such lots do not satisfy the minimum requirements for lot width, lot area, street frontage, water frontage, or other dimension required by this Ordinance, then such lots are deemed automatically combined for zoning purposes so as to create one conforming lot or to create one nonconforming lot that is more conforming than the individual, smaller nonconforming lots. Additionally, once nonconforming lots or parcels of land are combined hereunder automatically or by deed, land contract or other written instrument, they shall not thereafter be split, re-divided or otherwise reduced in area unless all of the resulting lots or parcels of land comply with all of the lot area and dimension requirements of the zoning districts in which such lots or parcels of land are located as well as other applicable requirements of this Ordinance. This subsection applies whether platted lots or unplatted lost are involved.

3. In the event that two (2) or more adjacent lots are in single ownership, the Zoning Board of Appeals may permit their use as separate lots having less than the required lot area if it shall be determined that all of the following are met:

a. There is no practical possibility of obtaining additional land.

b. The lots can be so used without adversely affecting the character of the neighborhood.

c. No side yard provision is reduced to less than seven (7) feet.

d. Off-street parking requirements are met.

4. A nonconforming lot may only be expanded if it is brought into closer conformity with the regulations specified for the zoning district in which it is located.

Section 4.06 Plans Already Filed

In any case where plans and specifications for a building or structure have been filed with the City, which would conform with the zoning regulations effective at the date of such filing but not with the regulations of this Ordinance thereafter, and where a building permit for such building or structure has been issued and construction work started at or before the effective date of this Ordinance, then such work may proceed provided it is completed within one (1) year of said date.

Section 4.07 Miscellaneous

A. Burden of Proof

The burden of proof for establishing or proving the existence, type or any aspect of a lawful nonconforming structure, lot or use (as well as the size, scope, intensity, and extent thereof) is on the owner of the property involved.

B. Unlawful Expansion or Extension

If any lawful nonconforming lot, use, structure or building is expanded, extended, changed or intensified without prior City approval or in violation of this Ordinance, its lawful nonconforming status shall be deemed abandoned and the lot, use, structure or building shall fully conform and comply fully with this Ordinance.

C. No unlawful lot, structure, use or building shall be or become a lawful nonconforming use, lot, building or structure despite the passage of time.

Article II. The Rest of the Code of Ordinances is Unchanged. Except as expressly amended by this ordinance/ordinance amendment, the rest of the city of Newaygo Code of Ordinances, as amended, shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect.

Article III. Severability. Should any part, clause or portion of this ordinance/ordinance amendment ever be declared to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction that shall not affect any other part, clause or portion of this ordinance/ordinance amendment which shall remain in full force and effect.

Article IV. Effective Date. This Ordinance/Ordinance amendment shall become effective upon the expiration of seven (7) days after the date this Ordinance/Ordinance amendment or a summary thereof appears in the local newspaper as provided by law.
