Eviction Restrictions


The council enacted two urgency ordinances by voting unanimously to restrict commercial and residential evictions for non-payment of rent due to COVID-19 pandemic.  This ordinance will remain in effect until the governor or the county public health officer repeals their coronavirus emergency declarations, or the city council repeals the ordinance by at least a 4/5 vote; whichever comes first.

This ordinance does not relieve a residential renter from the rent owed, but it protects the renter during the COVID -19 emergency declaration from being evicted for non-payment and allows the renter up to 60 days after the ordinance is lifted to repay all past due rent.
