Serve on the Landlord-Tenant Committee

January 17, 2013 11:02 PM

The Mayor's Office and myself are looking for students to serve on a new city committee called the Landlord-Tenant Committee. This committee will effectively replace the landlord element of the Housing Committee, and we are now looking for UW students to apply. The ideal student has an interest in landlord-tenant relationships, pragmatic, and has prior rental experience in Madison. There are no major requirements.

The committee will meet once per month, and will provide insight into housing ordinances for the Common Council. The precise duties of the Committee include:

1. Serve as a forum for discussion and communication about focal point for landlord-tenant issues
2. Make recommendations to the Mayor and the Common Council on all aspects of landlord and tenant policies and issues, including landlord and tenant issues
3. Preform functions regarding rent abatement on behalf of the City

The committee will comprise of nine members; at least one member who is a student renter, one representing the apartment association, and one representing tenant advocates.

To apply students need to fill out a committee application and Statement of Interest, found here:

The application is rolling, with the first names being announced in early February.
