WILLIAMSPORT — Two rental properties in Williamsport are off the market for six months.
According to officials, the pair of apartments are the first rentals to be shut down under a new city ordinance.
The city’s mayor said both the unit on West Fourth Street and the unit on Hepburn Street had been occupied by people charged in connection with dealing drugs.
The “One-Strike Ordinance” says when a crime like this happens, the owners cannot rent out their place for six months.
A woman was evicted from the Hepburn property, and the mayor said guns and heroin were found in the unit.
