Alameda gives blessing to stricter eviction controls
On a 3-2 vote, the Alameda City Council early Wednesday decided to draft just-cause eviction policies.
The city attorney will now write amendments to the city’s rent ordinance, adding to existing eviction controls. The city also has a binding-arbitration policy for rent increases over 5 percent.
The council is expected to hold a formal hearing on the just-cause provisions in mid-June.
