City Council President Responds to Investigation into City Attorney

Tom Fudge: Last night, the San Diego City Council grappled with the vexing issue of mini-dorms, those formerly single family homes that have been chopped up to become rooming houses for college students. The council voted to impose strict, new parking requirements on mini-dorms. But the council balked at passing a so-called rooming house ordinance. Such an ordinance would prevent home owners with three or more bedrooms from having more than two rental agreements on their home.

That ordinance, that did not pass, is expected to come back for another vote, following more discussion and possible amendments. The mini-dorm controversy is but one issue before the city council these days. Others include waste water recycling, a federal waiver for sewage treatment and a requirement to recycle construction and demolition waste.
