Letter: Is Willmar aging gracefully?

There was an interesting article in the April 27 Minneapolis Star Tribune, “Suburbs Crack Down To Keep Curb Appeal.”

At least two Minneapolis suburbs are inspecting rentals inside and out. In addition, all properties including single family homes and businesses, undergo a drive-by inspection on a three-year basis — shorter if any prior history of problems.

As the mayor of Burnsville said, “When your city ages, you want it to age gracefully and also to make sure our property values are maintained and enhanced.”

Maybe Willmar city staff should check this out.
