Dozens of Minneapolis renters protested on the front lawn of embattled landlord Stephen Frenz' home Tuesday evening, as they wait to hear whether or not the city can revoke his rental licenses.
A month-long hearing concluded Monday, when attorneys for the city's regulatory department finished presenting evidence that argues Frenz committed fraud.
A city spokesperson said the hearing officer presiding over the administrative legal proceedings will have 30 days to issue findings in the matter.
As part of national Renters Week of Action, tenants who live in several of Frenz' Minneapolis properties held a protest in front of his house. They knocked on the door to try and get him to come outside.
Molly Hasbrook has lived in her apartment for five years and has multiple grievances with Frenz.
"There were cockroach infestations that were not addressed properly, we had no heat in the winter for the entire month of January one year," Hasbrook said. "If this is allowed to continue it will. It will continue, so we need to put a stop to it."
In August, a portion of the facade on one of Frenz's buildings collapsed, sending one person to the hospital with minor injuries.
