DM board looks to penalize landlord

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A housing appeals board is telling a Des Moines landlord to clean up many of his properties.  The board turned down a request by Mark Critelli, who has been deemed a habitual violator of rental codes.  He owns about 60 rental properties in Des Moines.  The board ordered city staff to go to court to get Critelli to repair 14 properties and get a judge to impose $40,000 in penalties. Critelli says he ran into money problems when tenants lost their jobs and couldn't pay rent.
