Landlord’s license suspended for health, safety violations 20 Oct 11

The owner of several local apartment complexes, who was cited last year by the city of Shakopee for health code violations, has now had her landlord license suspended in Burnsville.

Country Village Apartments was the subject of a seven-month investigation by the city of Burnsville, uncovering hundreds of violations, including mold problems, bedbugs, cockroaches, and ceilings sagging from water damage. A toad was even found living in one vacant unit.

City workers took more than 900 photos of the complex and logged 550 hours of investigation, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Owner Delores Lindahl was also cited last year for issues at Hunters Ridge Apartments in Shakopee, but the city does not license its landlords.
