For a one-year lease, the proposed increase could be anywhere from nothing to 2% for renewal leases starting on Oct. 1, according to the board. But a two-year lease could increase by 0.5% to 3.5%. The board will hold public hearings before the final vote on June 27. By Alison Fox firstname.lastname@example.org @AlisonFox Alison covers law enforcement and breaking news.
