AGENDA


1. Roll Call - 7:00 p.m.

2. Approval of Agenda

3. Public Forum

4. Approval of the December 18, 2006 regular meeting minutes .

5. Appeal Time Certain - 7:15 p.m.

a. Appeal T-4733/RWN-1438 - 1929 Ashby Avenue. The tenant appeals the hearing examiner's denial of her petition seeking rent reductions for alleged habitability violations at her unit. Inasmuch as the hearing examiner's denial of the petition is consistent with the evidence in the record, legal staff recommends that the Board deny the appeal and affirm the hearing examiner's decision.

b. Appeal T-4755/C-254 - 1455 Spruce Street, #1. This is a tenant appeal of a finding that a rent reduction agreed to by the landlord after an unexpected change in the tenant's finances did not change the initial rent established by the parties at the commencement of the tenancy. The tenant was also denied a rent reduction for the loss of use of a yard on an adjoining property. These findings comply with the law and Board regulations and, therefore, should be affirmed.
