In an effort to assist the Evansville Police Department in promptly contacting owners of rental property within the city limits, the Evansville City Council, the Police Department, and landlords and tenants worked together to create a registry of accurate contact information.

On Monday September 8, 2014, the Evansville City Council passed Ordinance G-2014-29. 

Annually, all single-dwelling and/or multi-dwelling rental property owners MUST register online or register at the Evansville-Vanderburgh County Building Commission Office. There is a cost of $5 per rental parcel or rental community.  To avoid any possible late fees, the form must be submitted by the deadline below. 

Walk-in Registration will be from April 20th – May 11th

Mail-in & Online Registration will be from April 20th – May 31st

A new owner or agent information must be reported to the Building Commission.
