EXCLUSIVE: Township to vote down Rent Control Board abolishment proposal

twp-committee-2016-mayor-miller-tlsThe proposal to abolish the Lakewood Rent Control Board (RCB) will be voted down tonight, Mayor Menashe Miller tells TLS.

The prosposed ordinance was introduced during the last Township Committee meeting in response to the fact that the RCB did not meet on a steady basis, resulting in the needs of the intended recipients not being met, officials said.

The idea was to get rid of the Board, and replace it with another more efficient agency.

However, since introducing the ordinance to get rid of the Board, officials heard from members of the Board that they’re recommitting themselves to it, and strengthening the Board.

“In an effort to give it another shot, we intend to vote down the ordinance,” the Mayor told TLS.

The Mayor adds, “I’ve spoken with Township Committeeman Mike D’Elia who serves as liaison to the RCB – he too will be redoubling his efforts to get the board members to attend meetings.”
