June 5, 2020 - Proclamation Extending the City’s Residential Eviction Moratorium
The City of Woodland recognizes the economic impacts COVID-19 has placed on citizens. In an effort to help those that are facing financial challenges, on June 4, 2020, the City’s Residential Eviction Moratorium was extended through a proclamation until July 28, 2020.
On March 17, 2020 the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 1658, an urgency ordinance imposing a moratorium on residential evictions within the City of Woodland if such evictions were caused by a tenant’s failure to pay rent due to financial impacts caused by COVID-19, the global pandemic that has caused significant public health and economic impacts throughout the world. The ordinance provided for a delay in rent payments but did not waive the requirement to pay rent.
Landlords and residential tenants are encouraged to negotiate payment plans, and tenants are encouraged to pay a portion of their rent owed if they cannot pay the entire amount.
Residents in need of services or resources are encouraged to call or visit Yolo 2-1-1, which provides for a database of resources and links to health and human services . Call 2-1-1 from your phone or log on to: http://www.211sacramento.org/211/2-1-1-yolo-county.
