Rental property owner workshop is Sept. 7

The Lyndale Neighborhood Association’s Crime and Safety Committee is hosting a Rental Property Owner Workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Painter Park, 34th Street & Lyndale Avenue South.

Lyndale Community Organizer Kristine Danzinger is organizing the event and said it would focus on ways rental property owners care for and operate their buildings, highlighting ways to increase safety in Lyndale and surrounding neighborhoods.

The event will feature speakers such as Paul Kjornes, a Kingfield resident who owns numerous rental properties in the CARAG and Lyndale neighborhoods. He’s a member of the city’s Rental License Review Board, overseeing renter and landlord conduct. Kjornes has also had experience in eradicating problems at his rental properties, such as drugs and prostitution.

Rental property owners from Lyndale and surrounding neighborhoods are welcome to attend. For more information about the workshop, call Danzinger at 824-9402, extension 16.
