The Mountain View City Council is eyeing a potential ballot measure that would make changes to the city’s rent control law.  

It’s unclear, however, what changes would be included in the potential measure – and whether they could make the city’s rent control ordinance even worse.  

City staff has suggested the council might explore asking voters to bolster its rent control law with a rent registry, vacancy control for landlord-caused tenancy terminations, new noticing requirements, and possible limits on how housing providers share utility costs with renters.
