The City of Morris established a Resident Rental Property Registration & Licensing Ordinance in 1999 which is administered by the Morris Housing & Redevelopment Authority (HRA). In 2007, the City Council also created the City of Morris Rental Housing Commission with the purpose of creating commonly acceptable solutions to problems that arise among landlords, tenants, and community members.
The Commission goals are : educate tenants and landlords, provide accessible informative documents, and establish strong concepts about both tenant and landlord rights and responsibilities.
"Funding for the RENTAL HOUSING COMMISSION WEB SITE has been provided by a Broadband Technical Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant from the US Department of Commerce, under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, to the C.K. Blandin Foundation and the Stevens County Economic Improvement Commission, Inc. (SCEIC)."
