Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority (APCHA) wants to start fining residents for non-compliance.   

 

 

 

 

At an Aspen City Council work session last week, APCHA  board members presented the fine structure.

Amounts range from $250 to $5,000, depending on the infraction. Violations include failing to turn-in proof of employment and residency, renting to a non-qualified resident, or failing to re-qualify for a rental unit.

Revenue from fines would cover the cost of an APCHA hearing officer who would enforce regulations.

APCHA recommended the fines last fall, which first need approval by city council and county commissioners.
