UPDATE: February 2, 2016
The City Council adopted Ordinance 1300 related to residential rental housing.
The rental licensing ordinance was amended to require background checks for new license applicants, remove the requirement that a criminal or administrative citation be issued prior to the issuance of a warning letter, requiring that all landlords use the crime free lease addendum as part of their leases and the removal of the STAR program. The ordinance also clarified that boardinghouses are not allowed, which means that no more than 3 unrelated people can reside in one rental unit.
