Several people have inquired about what happened last night with respect to the Rent Control and Just Cause Ordinance.
The simple explanation is that the City Council ran out of time before a vote could be taken. The City Council Rules of Procedure and Order require that meetings end at 11:30 PM, at the latest, unless a supermajority (5 votes) approves an extension. The vote to extend past 11:30 was 4-3, and the motion failed. The meeting was adjourned at 11:30 PM.
The City Council is not scheduled to meet again until September 15, 2015.
