“With more than 1,650 rental properties in the City of Holland, fair housing is an important value of the Human Relations Commission,” said Esther Fifelski, manager of the City’s Human Relations Department. “We want all tenants and landlords to know their rights and responsibilities in a housing agreement, so that we can avoid unnecessary stress on Holland families and reduce the need for legal intervention.”
