County Council to face issue of rent stabilization after summer recess

August 18, 2022

When the County Council returns from its summer recess in September, members face an issue of growing importance: Should rent stabilization policies be used as a tool to help with housing affordability? Late last month, council members decided not to vote yet on a proposed bill that would have extended the existing rental increase cap at 4.4% for six months. The 4.4% was higher than the rental increase cap of 0.4%,which was  tied to the county’s voluntary rent guidelines, and expired in mid-May.
