PUBLIC NOTICE FAIR HOUSING NOTICE This notice is intended to express the City of Blair's support of the Federal Fair Housing Law, which declares that it is the national policy to provide fair housing throughout the United States and prohibits seven specific kinds of discriminating acts regarding housing if the discrimination is based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin. It is a violation for the following to occur: 1. Refusal to sell or rent or otherwise deal with a person. 2. Discrimination in the conditions or terms of sale, rental or occupancy. 3. Falsely denying housing is available. 4. Discriminatory advertising. 5. "Blockbusting" - causing person(s) to sell or rent by telling them that embers of a minority group are moving into the area. 6. Discrimination in financing housing by a bank, savings and loan association or other business. 7. Denial of membership or participation in brokerage, multiple listings or other real estate services. 8. Interference (intimidation, threats, coercion, etc.) to keep a person from the full benefits of the Federal Fair Housing Laws. Anyone that feels they have been denied housing based on any of the above may contact the City Clerk's office for a Housing Discrimination complaint form. ZNEZ PT 1-19-21
