The Georgia Legal Services Program in Dalton is holding a free public forum to discuss unsafe and dilapidated housing, including the effects on renters, their families, and the entire the community at noon on Wednesday, May 15.

The meeting will be held at the Mack Gaston Community Center on North Fredrick St

Items to be discussed at the meeting will be

  • Common housing code violations,
  • Landlord and tenant responsibilities,
  • Tenant rights,
