Lancaster City Council Passes Ordinance On Lead Paint Health Concerns

Lead Paint Ordinance in Lancaster City
 
City Council unanimously passed an ordinance on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, to toughen up Lancaster’s regulations on lead paint in homes and apartment buildings. The new regulation will require landlords to certify properties that were built before 1978 as lead-safe or lead-free in order to rent to families with children age 6 or under who are at a higher risk from lead. This lead ordinance will take effect in the next few weeks.

 
This is a big step in trying to solve a major public health concern and will be part of a much bigger effort that will be broadened and analyzed going forward.
