City Council at its Tuesday, May 16th 7pm meeting will discuss whether to fund a housing rights legal services program for tenants. We brought the idea to the city because residents who rent can find ourselves on the wrong end of an eviction notice or subject to harassment by the landlord. City Council recognized the need! If this proposed $60,000 grant is supported we will finally have some access to free legal advice when we need it.
The first step is City Council review tonight, Tuesday May 16th at 7pm. (Here is the agenda.) Because this is a late addition to the annual Community Assistance Grant Fund program, Council may refer it to Human Relations Commission next Monday, May 18th at 9AM, to review proposals from three organizations that responded to the city’s call.
