Attention Richmond Residents
Seeking applicants for the Richmond Rent Board!

The terms of the current Rent Board members expired March 21, 2019, and the board is functioning under a questionably legal provision of Resolution 4-09, adopted January 20, 2009, which allows a 90-day holdover for any board or commission members not replaced by a new appointment. In any event, the 90-day period will end on June 19, and unless rent board members are appointed at the next (June 18, 2019) City Council meeting, the Rent Board will cease to have any members.

There are up to 5 seats open for appointment by the mayor.  Two of the five original appointees have resigned. We are looking for new applications from Richmond residents and while it is not required, we are encouraging renters to apply.  Also, only two of the five board members can own or manage residential rental property or be a licensed real estate professional.

Due Date:  June 11, 2019

Powers and Duties:

  • Attend monthly board meetings
  • Provide oversight and policy direction for Rent Program
  • Regulate rent adjustments and fees
  • Mediate disputes
