Johnson County officials passed a new rental code on Thursday.

The new rules will make it easier for renters to have their complaints investigated by county officials. Violations of safety standards will be the responsibility of the property owner to solve.

Property owners could face fines if their properties are not up to code.

Agricultural land will be exempt.

County Planning and Zoning Department officials say that the codes are in progress and will be reworked later.

The measure passed 3-2 at Thursday evening's Johnson County Board of Supervisor's meeting.

Supervisors Janelle Rettig and Rod Sullivan voted no.
