Councilwoman Christine Croce has introduced legislation that seeks to provide some protection to home buyers. She wants anyone who owns a home or rental property that was once used as a meth lab to record that information on a city form, a form that would be given to a new buyer. If her legislation gets passed, selling a meth lab home without disclosing that information to a buyer would be considered a first-degree misdemeanor. The crime would be punishable by a maximum of 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
