Alameda Talks Rent Control until 4am

The Alameda city council began developing a rent stabilization ordinance in a meeting that lasted until 4am Wednesday morning. Alameda is one of the only cities in the San Fransisco Bay Area that currently offers no form of either eviction protections or rent control. The Highly anticipated city council meeting was given a special format and neutral location large enough for the entire audience to attend and contribute to the discussion after limited time and space lead to a physical confrontation the last time renter protections were discussed by the board.
