Reader Report on Tenant Harrassment Bill Hearing

Thought I'd post this more prominently. It's a report from reader Michelle about the Council hearing this morning about Council bill Inro. 627, which would offer tenant's more protection.

"Some Council Members today were concerned with assessing how fair 627 would be for both landlords and tenants. They were preoccupied with the notion that 627 be balanced. Some other Council Members pointed out HPD's inconsistencies and emphasized what a historic bill it would be. Representatives of the City-wide Tenant Housing Corp. did an amazing job defending the bill!"

Feel free to join the conversation if you have a different take on the proceedings, or if you'd like to add anything to Michelle's comments.

  1. The Indypendent has a piece on the bill following yesterday's hearings. Sounds like it will come to a vote in the council this coming Wednesday February 13.
