Commissioner Diaz requested co-sponsorship on the foregoing proposed resolution. Commissioner Jordan stated if apartments were included in this proposed resolution the County should require the landlord to give tenants some consideration for a reduction in the monthly lease payment, due to the benefit the landlord would receive from the insurance company. Following discussion among the Board members, the Board adopted the foregoing proposed resolution as amended to delete “mobile homes” and to add “single family homes.”
