Owners of rental housing are invited to attend the next in a series of dinner and discussion events next Thursday, May 25.


The event will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at The Salvation Army, 400 Capital Ave. NE.


The panel discussion will focus on housing inspections. Participating on the panel are city Code Compliance Manager Jason Francisco, Battle Creek Housing Commission Housing Inspector Jim Kopka, Bedford and Pennfield Township Rental Housing Inspector Kim Tuck, and Calhoun County Housing Agent for the Michigan State Housing Development Authority Dagmar McKinney.

This is the eighth rental property owners outreach event organized by the Rental Housing Roundtable, part of the Greater Battle Creek Homeless Coalition.


Landlords are invited to attend. For more information, please email rentalroundtablebc@gmail.com.
