How do I register my rental property that is located within the city limits?

All rental properties in the City of Owatonna must be registered and licensed through the Fire Department. See City Ordinance 115 for details. 


You may register your property by filling out the Rental Property License Application . An inspection of the property will need to be scheduled. Once the property passes the inspection and the fees are paid, a license will be issued.
