On January 28, 2013, the Mayor and Common Council of Westminster approved Ordinance No. 839 that created a Rental Housing License Program in the City of Westminster. The final approved Ordinance was the result of the efforts of the City's Rental Licensing Task Force that began work on this issue in 2012. The Rental Housing License Program becomes effective June 1, 2013. The annual license fee is $20 per unit and every rental unit must be licensed with the City before it can be rented or leased.
