City Council delays votes on landlord registry and inspection ordinances due to member’s illness

OMAHA, NE (Omaha World-Herald News Source) – The Omaha City Council has delayed voting on competing proposals for a new Omaha landlord registry and rental inspections plan after a council member became sick.

Councilman Brinker Harding represents west Omaha and was one of the authors of the ordinances. He told the Omaha World-Herald on Tuesday that doctors told him to stay home after he spent much of the early morning ill.

About noon, he called colleagues and asked for at least a one-week delay. Council President Ben Gray and others said they would wait.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to delay the matter for one week to allow Harding to participate.
