Legislation introduced to help cities enforce blight law

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan House has passed legislation that would allow communities around the state to do more to eliminate blight.

It would give administrative hearings bureaus in Grand Rapids, Jackson, Flint, Detroit, and four Detroit suburbs the ability to increase penalties for blight violations. State Representative Amanda Price says it should help to give local blight laws some teeth.

The new legislation would also prohibit individuals with outstanding blight fines from being granted building permits. Price says the measure is a step toward combating blight and building better neighborhoods.
