La PORTE — City officials have put the La Porte’s most neglectful landlords – and unruly tenants – on notice.

On Tuesday, the La Porte City Council approved an ordinance that allows condemning of rental properties that draw frequent visits from law enforcement for criminal activity. Per terms of the ordinance, the city can close down apartments, rental homes and other dwellings that receive five police response calls within six months.
