TOLEDO, OHIO (WNWO)-- Toledo landlords could face up to ten thousand dollars in fines if their properties aren't up to the standards require for the City of Toleodo's lead ordinance.

It was the topic of discussion at the Old West End Neighborhood Initiatives meeting on Tuesday night.

By June 30th, city and county leaders expect more than twelve thousand inner city properties to be inspected by one of the city's inspectors.

If found without a passed inspection, residents could face $50 per day fines.

Residents questioned everything from how officials would check homes to deadline extensions.

There is a lead hazard control grant available for property owners.

That's only if you have a child under the age of 6 or are pregnant.
