Brooklyn Center Gives Initial OK to Tenant Protection Ordinance
The city of Brooklyn Center passed the first reading of an ordinance this month that would further protect tenants.
The state’s eviction moratorium has ended and city officials said low vacancy rates also factored into the decision.
The tenant protection ordinance would be similar to ones approved in Minneapolis and St. Louis Park. It would require landowners to provide a 30-day written notice prior to filing for an eviction. The ordinance would also restrict evictions to non-payment of rent or significant breach of lease. Under the ordinance, a property owner could not evict without just cause.
