During a special meeting Tuesday, the Milpitas City Council decided to pursue an emergency “just cause” for eviction ordinance.

The council directed staff to draft the ordinance for council consideration when it meets Oct. 15. Because it’s an emergency ordinance, it would need 4 out of 5 votes to pass. If it does, it would take effect immediately and remain in place until the beginning of next year, when statewide “just cause” policies are expected to take effect under Assembly Bill 1482. The council directed staff to draft the emergency ordinance to mirror exactly the just-cause section of AB 1482.
