Out-of-town landlords who prefer "flying solo" may be getting evicted in Pottsville.

City Council is considering an amendment that would require landlords who are not full time residents of Pottsville and who do not live within 20 miles of the city to appoint managers for their buildings.

Officials say this would result in better management of rental units and also crack down on absentee landlords.

City Council will cast a final vote in January.
