BASTA Presents State of the Renter 2019: The Fight For Healthy Housing in Austin! Click here to learn more
The 2015 International Property Maintenance Code requires insect screens in dwelling units. While this model code was recently adopted by Austin, the City Council did not implement the insect screen requirements and asked for more public input before making a decision. Austin Code has come up with a survey to get people's opinions.
Our tenants associations are filling out this survey to make their voices hear. Any Austinite can fill a survey out. Public input will be accepted until April 30th 2018. For more information on the ordinance, visit the Austin Code Department.
