House to vote on Burlington’s Just Cause Eviction charter change
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont House lawmakers are scheduled to vote on Burlington’s Just Cause Eviction charter change at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
This charter change was approved by voters last Town Meeting Day.
Changes to a city charter must be approved by the Vermont Legislature.
The change would stop landlords from evicting their renters without “just cause.” That means a landlord would have to prove a tenant breached their written rental agreement, violated state statute or failed to pay rent.
If it passes, the City Council will then take it back to make the changes at the city level.
