    I am concerned what may happen under a moratorium on rent. I have one rental. I rely on the rent to pay for everything related to the rental. Burdens should be shared and fair to all residents. It seems this has not been thoroughly thought through. How long are residents expected to go with substantial loss of rental income? Please take into account all San Jose residents. There should also be a provision that tenants become current on past due rent.

    City Council has requested people watch this meeting via internet.
    The first floor City Hall staff are still required to work, hours not changing, not reducing the chance of exposing themselves COVID-19, is gross negligence on behalf of the city's leadership. It is incumbent on council to support the 1st floor staff to work without being face to face with customers and provide the best service possible. This is for any staff who do not work behind glass. Thank you for your consideration.
