The city council in Cleveland Heights on September 2 votes on a resolution to lift a temporary ban on payday loans, and another resolution that would appeal to the state legislature to cap interest rates on these types of loans, Cleveland.com reported.
According to reports the city council will request the state’s lawmakers to require payday loan companies to strictly follow the Short-Term Loan Act (STLA). The request was sought at the time the council may be forced to lift the moratorium that temporarily prevented payday firms to operate with a mortgage lending license, allowing them impose interest rates of as much as 390 percent. If loan companies are regulated under STLA, they may only charge a maximum of 28 percent interest.
