Rental Housing

City of Fort Dodge

Rental Housing

Inspection Program



In 1976, the State of Iowa passed a law requiring that all cities with a population of over 15,000 people have a rental housing inspection program. 


The Rental Housing Inspection Division of the City of Fort Dodge is responsible for enforcing this program.


To comply with State Law, the City of Fort Dodge City Council has passed Ordinance No. 2079, which requires that all owners of rental property register their property with the City.  Along with the registration of the property, there is a periodic inspection of the property, which is currently on a 3-year rotational basis.
