The Rental Services Commission is the City's main advisory body for landlord-tenant policy. This week, they'll be discussing mandatory registration of all rental units, which can be used to carry out mandatory health and safety inspections as well as establishing a landlord fee to pay for expanding the Rental Services Office. Come share your stories and make sure tenant voices are heard!
