Mayor Weinberger Statement on Settlement with ACLU of Vermont

 

Burlington, VT – Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement today regarding the City of Burlington’s settlement with the ACLU of Vermont.

 

The City is committed to all residents having the safe and high quality housing they deserve. 184 Church Street has fallen far short of this standard for years, and has been the ongoing focus of Code Enforcement action as a result.

 

“In this unusual instance, the landlord chose to start eviction proceedings rather than address the problems raised by the City. This was not the outcome the City was seeking. To prevent something like this from happening again, and to bolster our historically strong tenant protection policies, the City is working with the ACLU of Vermont to improve our tenant notification procedures.”
