Chicago bed bug ordinance (2014)
For reference purposes the ordinance is attached to this post. Part of the new ordinance is the requirement for all condo associations to prepare and adopt a "pest management plan for the detection, inspection and treatment of bed bugs in the building". The city is required to post a sample plan to their website so that board members can have an idea what this type of plan should look like. The city has yet to post this sample plan so it is not yet possible to adhere to the ordinance.
After all, how would a board be confident that their "plan" meets the criteria of the city if pre-approved samples do not exist? Once the city posts a sample plan we will add to this blog along with the template that we create for our client base.
