Collier County Commissioners discuss repeal of 60-day rent increase ordinance


In October, the Collier County Board of Commissioners approved an ordinance requiring landlords to give tenants 60-day written notice upon increasing their yearly rental rate by more than 5%. Landlords could face a fine of up to $500 if they fail to give their tenants the proper notice.
