The ordinances, designed to protect the citizens and neighborhoods of Providence, will be added to Chapter 13 of the Code of Providence Ordinances, adding Sections 13-213 through 13-217 and 13-218 through 13-220 “Responsibilities of Owners, Operators and Occupants”. The post-foreclosure eviction ordinance became effective immediately upon passage, and the foreclosure conciliation ordinance is effective within 30 days of passage or on August 25, 2009.
