(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) Wednesday was the second meeting for a newly formed city committee that hopes to address the concerns of landlords in St. Joseph. The main goal of the Voluntary Rental Inspection Citizen Committee is to give landlords the option to decide if they want inspections of their properties done by the city.

In its second meeting, the committee decided to push back its original end of the year deadline for an outine for the group to May of next year. This is a hot button topic for some landlords in the area and did not shy away from making their voice heard.

"Tensions are high with this type of topic in the community," Jason Eslinger, chairman of the committee, said. "Hopefully we'll get to a resolution that everybody can agree on."

The committee is now asking the mayor to address the city council to extend that deadline.

The committee's next meeting is scheduled for November 7.
