From Staff Report for 12/3/19 City Council Meeting:
Part of the proposed amendments regulate the relationship between landlords and tenants in the City of Half Moon Bay. These amendments are not anticipated to have an impact on City finances. The remainder of the amendments establish a City-funded mediation program for landlords and tenants.
Having conferred with staff in other cities, it is anticipated that the cost of mediation services can be covered by either Community Development or Community Services budgets. If the expense is unexpectedly higher than these budgets can support, it is possible for City Council to allocate monies from the Affordable Housing Fund to support this activity as an eligible use of that fund; however, staff recommends not drawing down the Affordable Housing Fund for such programmatic activities unless absolutely necessary.
