Poughkeepsie council weighs opting into rent stabilization under Emergency Tenant Protection Act

Poughkeepsie's Common Council held a public hearing on Tuesday to see if the city should opt in to the Emergency Tenant Protection Act.

Jeffrey Dash, a retired veteran who said he relies on affordable housing, attended the meeting at City Hall.

He told News 12 that he recently found out that his building was going to increase his rent by $300.

When asked if he could afford the new rate, he said, "Right now, no."

Dash opened up about his dilemma in front of Poughkeepsie Common Council members.

They're deciding if they should opt into the act that stabilizes rent.
