On Sept. 16, Dubuque officials, on the Telegraph Herald’s front page, stated they were concerned about homes being bought up and turned into rentals, thus shrinking the single home market.

That is easily remedied by having higher property taxes for rental properties owned by companies. That will discourage this problem. Easy fix.
