SANTA CRUZ — The Santa Cruz City Council took the first step toward reviving recently lapsed landlord eviction limits Tuesday, putting in place temporary rules for up to a year in a 4-3 vote just before midnight.
If the council gives final approval to the interim ordinance with a second vote at a coming meeting, landlords once again will need to ensure they have “just cause” for their tenant evictions. Acceptable eviction reasons range from failure to pay rent to nuisance violations.
