Northern municipalities will now be responsible for inspection of their apartments and septic systems.

The most recent meeting for FONOM focused on a number of issues including responsibility of apartment rentals, inspections and how to reduce fossil fuel use.

FONOM President and Kapuskasing Mayor Alan Spacek also says municipalities will now be taking on a few different responsibilities.

Spacek says the provincial government should be the ones assuming these responsibilities.

He says FONOM is not happy with their added responsibilities, as well as added costs.
