In the article you will find:

"Edwards also downplayed the idea that inspectors would be interfering with tenants' lives inside their homes, pointing out that inspections typically occur with changes in occupancy.”

THIS IS TRUE IF A RENTER STAYS LESS THAN 1 YEAR… However, if a owner has renters move in and out in less than a year’s time there is generally a problem with the house or the renter except in rare occasions.
The ordinance I read states:
3. Inspection Scheduling.
a. The Director of Municipal Development or his designee and the owner/landlord may agree on a reasonable date and time for the initial inspection and annual inspections thereafter. However, in the event the parties cannot agree on an inspection time or if scheduling, time constraints or other factors are likely to prevent the city from inspecting the property in a timely manner on or before deadlines expire the inspections shall be scheduled by the city after giving the owner/landlord written notice of the date and time of each inspection no less than fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled inspection.
b. In the event that the city designated inspector is denied admittance or entry to conduct an inspection, said denial shall not be a violation of this chapter, however, the landlord/owner shall be required to reschedule the inspection within ten (10) days. A second denial of admittance may result in additional inspection fees or securing right of entry by obtaining an administrative search warrant.
c. An inspection may occur at any time between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the date of the scheduled inspection.
d. All future annual inspections shall be scheduled within thirty (30) days of the anniversary date in which the previous year’s inspection was conducted.
e. Tenants of occupied units scheduled for inspection shall have the right to be present during such inspections. The owners/landlord shall notify tenants of occupied dwellings of scheduled inspections not less than seven (7) days prior to the scheduled date of the inspection.

The Tribune article continued :

"Most tenants should never see the inspector since crime free properties are inspected while vacant. There are certain times when the inspector will be out in rare occurrences such as call in complaints and such," Edwards said.

From my experience, most renters are like any other person…They don’t like someone going through their personal residence without them or someone representing them being present. Based on the reasonable times 8-5, Monday-Friday being the inspection times, this will require renters to take time off work for the inspection on an annual basis it they don’t make a move within 30 days of the initial inspection.
