A 90-day moratorium on evictions for failure to pay rent due to the novel coronavirus pandemic is on the agenda when the Hayward City Council meets on Tuesday, along with a moratorium on no-fault evictions that otherwise would be allowed under the city’s residential rent stabilization ordinance.

The council will also consider a six-month delay in implementing a city minimum wage increase scheduled to take effect July 1. A vote on a delay would be held at a future meeting.

To reduce the chance of COVID-19 exposures and transmission, the council meeting will be closed to the public and mechanisms are being put in place to instead allow council members to meet remotely via teleconference.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast live on Comcast Channel 15 and available via live stream on the city website, www.hayward-ca.gov.
